Job ad -- no decision yet

"I have received an overwhelming amount of applications for the job ad I put out on Eurodressage, and new e-mails keep arriving every day. I'm reading them all, and I want to give them all due consideration, which is time-consuming, so I have to ask for a little patience. If you've written to me and haven't heard from me yet, please be sure that I _will_ reply, either to invite you or to say no, regretfully. Until then -- thanks for the interest this ad has raised all over the globe!"
