Hi,

In one of the letters, you called yourself a progressive thinker.

In one of the letters, you called yourself a 'progressive thinker.'

First, are quotes necessary? Second, if they are, should they only be around progressive thinker (leaving out the article 'a' before that)?

Thank you so much.

No, but if the exact wording he used is somehow important, then use the quotation marks.

That is your decision. There is no need to include the article unless you think it is important to.

Thanks.
