I promise you that it's not "Higgins."

Whoa! Out of my league!

(I think I might have some idea of who the letter might be to, though. But I'll keep shtum).

I was going to post a funny/semi-snarky "gondor59 is trying to sell it on eBay" but then gondor59 came and did just that himself.

Lovely letter, and I know what you mean about trying to part with things like this, Jim!

Thanks for sharing, posting, and offering for sale.

Wow, you guys are fast....lol. I know I'm probably asking far too much for the letter. But that amount is the only thing that will get me to part with it.

Jim.

The info about the watermark comes from my own personal experience. I own a typed, signed letter with the post marked envelope from Tolkien written on his Sandfield Road stationary to a little girl in 1964 (I was able to contact the original owner who stated they had lost the letter at Princeston University in the late sixties. I bought the letter from a seller who found the letter in a storage box at Princeton). The Basildon Bond watermark is clearly visible when held up to a light.


Jim is selling this letter on eBay.
