How about this one.

Not even the flimsy slipcase.

As if by magic 'Tree and Leaf' appears on the site.

It must be an absolute pain in the backside, for a guy like David Brawn to see (& hear) about the nonsense customers put up with on the ground. I'm sure he's genuinely taking feedback on board. Good stuff.

Really surprised to hear that they're not going to go with your 20 numbered & signed copies, to be distributed free idea tho'...

Text of the letter

"My dear Higgins,
Thank you for your greetings
again this Yule.
I have been busy with the help of my
secretary, charging ahead with the re-
examination of an age old project called
the Silmarillion.
Your interest in my iliterary efforts
will no doubt result in a signed copy one
day as a sign of my gratitude for your
efforts in diagnoses. Of which, the world
must know nothing, as we agreed.
Yes, it would be pleasant to see you
in Oxford on the 25th. I am looking forward
to showing you around the old place.
With best wishes
Yours sincerely,
J.R.R. Tolkien"
