On 10 August 1952, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a letter to Moira Sayer (wife of George Sayer).[1][2]

[edit] Excerpt

It's pretty well a crescendo until at least Chap. 4 of the last "book". It is on the rallentando and coda [i.e. the winding down of the story, and the hobbits' return to the Shire] that I am specially anxious for your opinion.
—J.R.R. Tolkien[1]
