Dear Jack,Please forward this mail to John. It’s the response to the mail he asked you to forward to me. What does he take me for?!
“Dear John, Jack forwarded your mail to me. I am constrained by higher considerations to reply your mail though ordinarily I would have ignored it. You wrote me for solution to your “problem” with an ignoble motivation. Once the motivation is of doubtful provenance the integrity of an act becomes a questionable proposition.
