Summary

Tolkien said that his aunt's suggestion of a small book featuring Tom Bombadil was a good idea although he felt disinclined to write any more about him. He thought the original poem, if illustrated by Pauline Baynes, would make a pretty booklet. If his aunt did not have the original poem he would try to have a copy made for her.
