Rejection Letter

One day, when I submit a book manuscript to a publisher, this is the rejection letter I would like to get:

Most honorable Sir, We perused your MS with boundless delight. And we hurry to swear by our ancestors we have never read any other that equals its mastery. Were we to publish your work, we could never presume again on our public and name to print books of a standard not up to yours. For we cannot imagine that the next ten thousand years will offer its ectype. We must therefore refuse your work that shines as it were in the sky and beg you a thousand times to pardon our fault which impairs but our own offices. -Publishers

Rejection letter from a Chinese publisher, from Louis Zukofsky’s “A”, as found in The First Five Pages
