RE: Before It Is Too Late

I wish to formally acknowledge your letter dated December 2, 2013 
and other previous correspondence similar to it.

You will recall that all the letters were brought to me by hand. 
Although both of us discussed some of the issues in those letters, I
 had not, before now, seen the need for any formal reply since, to me, 
they contained advice from a former President to a serving President. 
Obviously, you felt differently because in your last letter, you complained 
about my not acknowledging or replying your previous letters

It is with the greatest possible reluctance that I now write this reply. 
I am most uneasy about embarking on this unprecedented and 
unconventional form of open communication between me and 
a former leader of our country because I know that there are 
more acceptable and dignified means of doing so
