1. Can you please answer some factual questions so I am able to answer your query. Firstly, who are you or what is your interest? Was the handwritten private communication marked 'private' or was it marked 'confidential'? Who has published the communication on social media - the recipient of the communication or some other person? What were the contents of the private communication? Did it contain any personal matters relating to the author's private affairs?
