[Tolkien apologises] for not having replied more fully, "I am having rather a bad time. I have left Oxford, and in the middle of the move I fell downstairs and damaged my right leg so badly that it is in plaster from toe to hip, and I am on crutches" and [gives] a reference to The Lord of the Rings, "I notice Spire Hollin: very Shire-like. Hollin is northern form of holly: and in Book I of The L.R: I lived for a while in Leeds in a Hollin Lane".[1]
