An amusing display of motherhood was exhibited when
a maternal monkey kept a pertinacious grip on her
baby's tail while it tried to wander away , repeatedly. :)

I don't know what's the last sentence want to talk about.
"Because, the ones who truly desire to even send me their missives, shall tell me, straight up, san the pertinacious necessity to make me analize or query, what they actually mean to declare."
especially what's the meaning to "San"in the sentence?
Would somebody kindly explain?
