Revision as of 15:45, 25 July 2008 by Ederchil (Talk | contribs)

Letter 5 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.


This letter was sent to Geoffrey Bache Smith on August 12, 1916. Smith had sent Tolkien a letter from fellow Barrovian Christopher Wiseman. After the death of Robert Gilson, Wiseman wondered whether the T.C.B.S. still had any purpose. Tolkien thinks so, and goes on to tell Smith about his ideas of friendship.
