The "Edge of the Wild" event, planned for 26 - 29 March in Moreton, is being postponed until an (unspecified) date in the summer. Angela Gardner's new book will be launched at the rescheduled event.

I'd agree with Trotter and others - very nice to see what to all appearances is a real letter! Letters such as this show up for sale every few months or so, but most of those are well known (up for sale more than once as they change hands multiple times).

There is not much scholarly value to your particular letter, but it is very charming!

At the moment we tend to see more fake letters than real ones, but Tolkien was a prolific letter writer so they must be a lot of letters from him ready to be found like you did.

I have to agree with Max's comments here.

The teacher could have translated the text herself as she read to the children or just translated words that the children did not understand in English.
