Letters

"One can never rely on the great keeping one's letters; and should those letters vanish, one is apt to be remembered only as the mysterious half of a dialogue to be reconstructed in the vaguest way from the surviving (and sometimes lesser!) half of the exchange."
--Gore Vidal, "Julian"
Chapter 1, Libanius to Priscus, Antioch March 380
