Dear St. Andrew

Language: English

Dear St. Andrew,
The whisky arrived in due course from over the water;
last week one bottle of it was extracted from the wood
and inserted into me, on the installment plan,
with this result: that I believe it to be
the best, smoothest whisky now on the planet.
Thanks, oh, thanks: I have discarded Peruna.
Hoping that you three are well and happy
and will be coming back before the winter sets in.
I am, Sincerely yours,

...the best, smoothest whisky.... Thanks!
