Mensagem:  "Michaels?  Was that the writer´s name?  I exchanged several letters with him around 2002-2003.  One night in Chapeco, I was mistaken for him when I visited an English class at the local university.  I told him about it, and he said that surely I was a most handsome fellow."

Hi, sir!

Why did you use such structure instead of "more", for instance?

"the + comparative of superiority" is all right, but "a most"? You don't mean "maioria/maior parte", do you?

TIA
