Alex- A few moments of reading pleasure

Sent November 3, 1994:
Chapters 1-3 sampled and
savored. Dreams enjoy
Sent November 4, 1994:

I ravished the final chapter.
Sent November 6, 1994:

but may I arrive at 8

The book I chose to write to is titled, The Physiology of Taste, by Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. The inscription is at the top of the post and used as an epigraph. The letter format is used with 2 voices, the giver and the receiver.
*Under electric candelight is a lyric from The Kinks’ song, “Layla”
