There are those who lament the passing of the ceremonious letter and others who regret that the -literary- letter-the kind of letter that can be published-is no longer with us. But the old letter of ceremony was not really more useful than a powdered wig, and as for the sort of letter that delights the heart and lightens the labor of the biographer-well, that is still being written by the kind of person who can write it. It is better that a letter should be written because the writer has something to say than as a token of culture.
