Topic: unexceptionable
Posted: Thursday, January 31, 2019 10:40:05 PM
I have a question for the example sentence:"No person need think of applying for this situation unless he could furnish the most unexceptionable references to character and abilities."

Why is there need to add "references to "here? I mean if i coud say: No person need think of applying for this situation unless he could furnish the most unexceptionable characters and abilities.
If it appears more simplicity?

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?
