Excerpt[edit | edit source]

Dear Mr Polet,

I cannot resist the temptation to disobey your kind command not to answer, and write to thank you for your letter of 22 December.

I am most grateful for your expression of pleasure; and I hope that you will continue to enjoy Vols. ii and iii.

Yours sincerely

J.R.R. Tolkien
