Though snail-mail may be a thing of the past, it still says much about the sender who takes the time and effort to select an appropriate note, to transmit into writing what comes from a creative mind and thoughtful heart, to seal and stamp the envelope and to find a post box completing an what began as a thought of another. I appreciated your note - you are a true gentleman of letters, as is said among the most refind of men. Besides, it nice to receive a note and to anticipate the joy of eventually opening it after dinner. It truly constitutes a meeting of friends.
