The covering email from this chap appears to have been more suited to an applicant for Director of the Brontë Society:
With due deference and in all obeisance to your exalted organisation, I submit my C.V for your valuable scrutiny and estimation in respect of validity and appropriate merit of my application and your kind disposal in favour of me.
I expect with sanguinary hopes that your benign study of my application may waft favourable gesture and due consideration.
There are, I can assure you, poets out there who are crying tears of blood because they didn’t think of ‘waft favourable gesture’. So much genius, so little appreciation…
