"Regarding Sylvie(a), it's a terribly fine match and there are no hard feelings on my end."
Did Grey Ackerly have feelings for Sylvia, or did they possibly date prior to Warner and Sylvia?
"(As) for the old man's choice. I've always said you live a charmed life."
I wonder if this might have to do with Grey's father leaving the printing house to Warner instead of his own son.
"Truth is I've had an idea that might, with some effort, benefit all of us."
Is this the beginning of Ackerly Green Publishing?!
