Dear, Dear, Dearest, hi!

Thank you for reading this letter.
Thank you for reading this letter.
Thank you.
Thank you for reading this letter about Standard Form for Language Resentment,
edited by BLANKED BLANKED.
Thank you.
Thanks.

We would first like to tell you that we are very very sorry that we have not sent you this letter earlier.
We thought we had sent it, sorry.
We apologize for the delay.
We have now written this [ letter ] and we have chosen to send it to you.
We can only send it to some of you.
We express our thanks to your post box which has received this letter.

When (i.e. if) you read this letter about Standard Form for Language Resentment, we would just like to say that it is written by journal-, committee- and publishing house staffs as well as Freke Räihä. Thus, Freke Räihä has written a lyrical/conceptual manuscript. He would, at a later date, also like to carry out a large scale publication of the attached and commenced work. This publication is but the beginnings of the now started Work. The manuscript is a means to demonstrate and to tell the world that even the established writer has been refused submission, sometimes with a hard pencil, sometimes with the humblest apologies. [Not a very interesting language use.]

If this (i.e. the the publishers’) intellectual property, the letters and so forth, addressed to the writer, would appear, would it then be okay? [If requested, we can BLANKED.]

We continue to write and we will be back. But we can say as much: we would like to write to you again.

We wish you good luck in paying attention to Standard Form for Language Resentment, which has been edited already.

Kind regards

We BLANKED BLANKED
