Suggested translation:

In regards/response to your letter, I have made my decision.

By the way, the Académie française frowns on the formulation suite à on stylistic grounds.

Ho boy, "faisant suite à" is not gonna be too easy to hammer in.

"Making follow at". Does French lack a proper verb/participle for "following"? Can't recall.

Why not simply, "Suite à votre lettre"?
