A business man in Chicago had occasion to write a Japanese friend in Tokyo. Mindful of the Oriental's appreciation of flowery language and of his own duty to the cause of good public relations, he ended his letter with the wish,

"May Heaven preserve you always."

To the delight of the business man's office staff, the Japanese responded with,

"May Heaven pickle you, too."
