This paper consists of a verbose and exaggerated fan letter to actress Nicole Kidman, based on the standard content for letters in the Elizabethan era. First, the writer praises Kidman for her beauty and talent, further depreciating himself as being unworthy of her response, yet hoping for it nevertheless. He also asks for her financial support in publishing some poems. It is apparent that this letter is a parody, and it is further stated that its format is based on Thomas Nashe's letter to Lord Wriothesley.

The paper concludes with the author reflecting on his letter and its connection to Nashe's.
