Roger Shaw 7 January 1966 is a letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to Roger Shaw, sent on January 7, 1966.

Excerpt

"I have never been to Iceland. Something has always interfered with my plans to go there. So my acquaintance with its landscape is derived entirely from photographs... One point of influence at any rate is certain, namely, the Midgewater Marshes, the name of which is of course merely a translation of Mývatn..."
