Do you suppose it would be an email today? If so, I wonder if there would be the same stiff formality mingled in?
As an email it would probably be even shorter. The letter makes me wonder if he dictated it to his secretary for her to type.
Ah, bet you’re right! Thus the notation…should have written long-hand. Would have liked to have been a fly on both the sender’s and the reciever’s wall for that one!
