To Fraulein, the flower-de-luce

What a fascinating coincidence! That as I re-read one of your messages, I found in one of your words – a common word, a word easily misspelled because of our being too familiar with it – an error which I myself have in the recent while been making quite frequently. You had omitted the final letter of the three-lettered word. I think it was the haste with which you typed your thoughts. So too it is haste which occasionally forces me into this error. The observers might probably think this all a fancy of the imagination: “Who is spellbound by a flower-de-luce shall readily believe every dust flake that lands on his hand to be a grain of sweet pollen.” But, still, what a fascinating coincidence!
