The next day, the employee recieved this letter of reply :

Dear NOrman,

I kNOw you have been working very hard. NOwadays, NOthing much
has changed. You must have NOticed that our company is NOt doing
NOticeably well..

NOw the newspapers are saying the world`s leading ecoNOmists are
NOt sure if the United States may go into aNOther recession. After the
NOvember presidential elections things may turn bad.

I have NOthing more to add NOw. You kNOw what I mean.
