"My Dear Sir
I'm sorry if I bore you with a second letter. I forgot to make a correction on the copy I gave you of this line:
no, if we no longer have the desire for the sublime.
I'd like to put:
no, if we no longer have an appetite for the sublime.
It seems more energetic to me. Besides, I'm reporting to you. You can wear or leave whatever you like.
Your most devoted servant.
