Dear Miss Horlbeck
This rejection is from the archives of 1936. Apparently the Real America ("The Outspoken Magazine") was once so outspoken as to leave out the noun in the customary noun/verb syntactical formulation known as the complete sentence. I kind of like it though, as it certainly allows the editor to evade responsibility, similar to how Daddy George Bush delivered his speeches. No "I" necessary! "Enjoyed reading....Suggest you try." Very cordial and removed. Also, I wonder if the comment in the top right corner is the name of Miss Horlbeck's story, or a description of her general outlook for getting published.
