rejection slip from a Chinese journal

“We have read your manuscript with boundless delight. If we are to publish your paper, it would be impossible for us to publish any work of lower standard. And, as it is unthinkable that, in the next thousand years, we shall see its equal, we are, to our regret, compelled to return your divine composition, and to beg you a thousand times to overlook our short sight and timidity.”

Origin not known.
