Here is another per procurationem letter. Interestingly, it is also from 1973. I wonder if this was more common during the final years of Tolkien's life.

Also, note same misspelling. "havn't"

I'm baffled, my uncle kept it in his 1st edition silmarillion for years, its interesting as Tolkien died that year

This sentence seems particularly interesting if Tolkien was dictating this letter: "As far as I can see, there can be no more books about hobbits but of course hobbits will feature in this new book The Silmarillion."

What do you think Tolkien meant by "of course hobbits will feature in this new book The Silmarillion"?

Of course, it is also possible that Tolkien did not dictate this letter.

There is a spelling mistake in this letter. It's also very sharp for a typed letter of 1973; it may just be the way it appears on the screen though.

garm: what is someone trying to do then, if not imitate a signature? I must confess, I don't really understand "signing" on another's behalf.
