This may be as reliable as the discredited claim that CT keeps wild boars in his garden to keep away fans, but I have heard that CT will only correspond by fax with his publishers, hence that would be the only way that he would have seen a copy of the item.

I found it funny that CT was "of the opinion" that the ink was his father's from a fax transmission.

Can we assume the story of Angie talking to Rayner, and he running it by CT (btw, hope the old gent had a good 86th the other day...), is rubbish?

My gut feeling is that not only is it fake, but it's not even a good fake. It's a shame that someone pulled this out of a 1954 FotR. I am definitely in agreement that this cannot be Tolkien's writing.
