Default Re: best

It's an abbreviation of Best regards.

It's usual to end emails in neutral style - ie not to friends - with
Best regards or just Regards. However sometimes, to make it slightly more informal, if you know the person though they're not a friend, then just Best is used.

I'm afraid your signature is unlikely though. Eliot died quite a long time before emails were ever thought of - unlikely he would have used it
