Dear Mr. Michael Moore-Jones,
My name is Henrique JB Marcos, I'm a Lawyer and International Law grad student in Brazil.
I'm currently writing my master's dissertation on the relation between the Security Council and the International Court of Justice. A necessary entry on my text will be a critique of the Security Council's practice over the years.
I write to you because your text and commentary on Per Krohg’s painting fits like a glove. Being it so, I would like to ask your permission to quote and reference your text, along with your name and access link.
You'll recieve all credit for authoring the text. I just want to mention it on my dissertation (if you allow it).
Hope to hear from you soon.
All the best.
Henrique JB Marcos (email@example.com)
P.S. please contact me through email. Thank you.
