As for the underlined part, which interpretation sounds better to you?

A) a letter saying that you’ll give up your love for someone

B) literally a letter saying that you’re going to quit your job


We can never display at any one time the entire complex of characteristics that make us human. Writing of different sorts bring different parts of our personalities into play: a job application will represent a different persona from that revealed in a declaration of love, while any subsequent letters of resignation will reflect yet another facets of our elusive essence.
