[edit] Excerpt

Dear Mr. Broberg,

I much regret that I shall not be in Oxford on the date that you suggest. I shall be away from the 19th June until the 15th July. I shall be in Bournemouth from July 4th. That is easily accessible from London and if the journey is worth the trouble to you merely for the purpose of seeing me I should be glad to give you a short interview. My address will be:

Hotel Miramar
East Overcliff Drive
Bournemouth, Hampshire

Yours sincerely,

J.R.R. Tolkien.
