Dear Win,
        I'm trying to find out whether stinky galagos are precocial or altricial.  Can you recommend something for me?  By the way, sorry about your father.
R.P. Maudlin-Jones

Most Honorable Maudlin-Jones,
        Opinion of 1st son is valueless, but I so happy to be recommending Oondóué M. Boué, “Precociality of New-Born Stinky Galagos,”  Journal of the African Nocturnal Primate Society,  27:42-82.

MEMO TO:  Win Wing Win.
        Keep this to yourself.  I've been having a hard time going to sleep at night, and I think I need a little light reading to help me drop off.  Maybe something about mating strategies in marmosets and tamarins.  Got any ideas?
Arnett Putney, III

Most Highly Venerable Publisher,
        I so being grateful to you for present job.  I most unworthy, but I very recommending Polyester and Polyestrousness in Callitrichid Primate Social Systems by Dr. Francois Oppenheimer Muldoon of Harvard University Primate Behavior Group.  It most good good.

Dear Win,
        I was in Badongo-Gazimbi recently, and I'd like to learn more about their traffic problems, especially as they relate to primates.  Do you know of anything published in this area?
Eric Scotmeister Fleiglehaus

Respected Senior Colleague,
        Apologize most abjectly for not anything knowing about Badongo-Gazimbi.  Perhaps you look at “Driving Behavior of African Pongids” by Sir Sprockett Watley-Treedle,  Encyclopedia of Myrmecophagic Primates, London, 1912.

Dear Win,
        The last time I was at a Chinese restaurant with your father, he asked me to take care of you if anything were to happen to him.  Now that he has been accidentally frozen, you can come and live with my family at my soapstone-lined mountain hideaway high in the Hollywood Hills, but your five brothers will have to fend for themselves.
Christopher Shaw

Most admired friend,
        Thanks thanks but no thanks thanks.  I belong publisher Arnett Putney, III and executive editor Widen Lundale, Jr. now.
