==Summary==
This letter, dated [[January 7]], [[1966]], is sent to a reader named Benjamin P. Indick. Indick had sent Tolkien a long letter with comments. Tolkien tells him he deserved a much longer answer, but he is pressed for time; in fact, if Tolkien wanted to produce more stories, like Indick asked, it would mean Tolkien could not answer fan letters at all.
