The new one is too different from the book and left out some important details. Old one isn't the best quality, but much truer to the storyline.

I would

ask them in person instead of sending them an email. If they agree, I would then send a follow up email thanking them and asking for the letter by a specific date.

Private schools cannot pay what public
