*MY REPLY*

Dear Draft2Digital,

 

I am confused as to whether the questionable content in my book, “THAT SUMMER”, or my alleged intent (by an electronic machine) is the actual issue. Or perhaps the machine was aroused, in which case you have a much greater problem than the contents of my book. I can assure you by giving you my word on the matter: my intention was to paint a slatternly picture of the character, not to arouse sexual desire in the reader.

I can also assure you my intentions, as long as they are in question, on the matter concerning “THAT SUMMER” are to leave the caps in the title and the content intact.

Sincerely,

R.Harlan Smith

ps: Maybe you can point out the Caps in the title for me.
