Paula Coston (letters).jpg

On 6 January 1969, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a letter to Paula Coston. [1]

[edit] From the Magazine's editor

"Paula did tell me she’s always jealously guarded the letters (and mentioned in the article not letting the biographers see them) so I believe this is the first time the contents will have been published anywhere, at least some of them."
