hi...i wanted to add some information to the custom order i just placed and do not know where on your site i can contact someone. i'd like my essay on VANITY to be written in simple English (not pedantic). Simple English but of course with a tight thesis. i also wanted to send some of the quotes from both poems to include in the paper but since time is of the essence, i don't know how to get them to you in time so i may just see what the writer sends as a finised product on Greed/Vanity/Juvelean satire in the essay. thank you
