    Both “your kind selves” and “your good self” are flowery, old-fashioned terms of address that used to appear in business letters that were closed with, “I remain, your humble servant”, and went out of use in North American half-a-century ago.

    It is an empty phrase which is slightly condescending.

    I think the French mean to be familiar with ‘tu’ and it is a sign of affection and kinship.

    The above phrase does not have those close connotations. It is aloof, like a pacifying pat on the head.
