[edit] Summary

Tolkien reported seriously trying to finish his book, staying up late, re-reading and doing research. It was painfully sticky getting into the swing again. Back to Sam and Frodo to try to work out their adventures; they just met Gollum on a precipice. Tolkien complemented his son on all the work he put into typing and wished he still had his services.
