I too have read your works, but did not notice your email. Thank you for pointing it out and for exposing the faux pas of “equally impressive” which alerts me to the need to be more fawning when I contact you, which I expect to do soon. Perhaps today, even.

But I wonder if you could possibly suggest some phrases that would guarantee that you would follow me? Perhaps, dare I ask, words that would create a true bond between us, one where I could count on your friendship and perhaps your financial support? If you could assist with that, I think I can promise that some lovely email will soon be coming your way. I will await your reply.
