William Caxton

Dear Prof B,

Thank you for your submission to the Journal of Universal Rejection.

I don't know who this William Caxton fellow is.  But more importantly, I read the first paragraph of your paper and I still don't know when or where he lived.  May I suggest that, like every good biography ever written, you start your paper with the sentence "William Caxton was born in (YEAR) in (LOCATION)."  I understand that your paper may not be a biography of William Caxton.  Nonetheless, we are going to have to agree with the other journals and reject your submission.

Best regards,
Caleb Emmons, PhD
