Doworst in "Monash Review"

Subject: Doworst in "Monash Review"

Hello everybody,

I am a Tolkien collector from Spain and I've read this forum for many years. Is the first time that I write in this forum. Sorry if my level of English is not very good...
I have discovered something really interesting in Internet. It is a scanning of an Australian magazine dated in 1975 ("Monash Review"). Three years before the publication of the humorous poem "Doworst" in the Australian fanzine 'A Elbereth Gilthoniel' (according to "Reader's Guide", Scull and Hammond, page 214) the manuscript of the poem and Tolkien's letter to Chambers appears reprodced in this magazine. The link is:

Maybe it's a new article to add to Tolkien publications...
