Summary

This letter was sent from Rugeley Camp in Staffordshire. Tolkien was in military training there, and wrote Kortirion among the Trees. He told about the cold weather and about sending T.C.B.S. a copy of Kortirion. He decided to send Edith his neat pencil copy and make the T.C.B.S. wait until he could make another.
