It looks to be a very poor effort on behalf of the Forger

You might want to have a look at Findegil's "Addenda and Corrigenda to The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide (2006) Vol. 1: Chronology"

and in particular look at the signature of the secretary on the letter

http://www.hammondandscull.com/addenda/chronology.html

"p. 634, add entry after that for 31 May 1965:

Second half of 1965 On Tolkien’s behalf and from his dictation, Baillie Knapheis writes a letter to a reader about The Lord of the Rings, reporting inter alia that the name of Merry’s wife was not recorded. Tolkien, however, in an added manuscript note, says that he ‘believes’ that Merry had married a sister of Fredegar Bolger, and will look into the matter (see The Peoples of Middle-earth, p. 117, n. 1.
"

Baillie Knapheis was Tolkien's secretary in 1965 and subsequently married Christopher Tolkien.

As far as I can tell this is the letter referred to on page 634.

It is also mentioned here

I bought a copy from Amazon and it has the text missing as in the article, they must have got this wrong on a huge number of copies of the UK book.

Interesting to see if the replacement copy states it is is a 1/1st printing, which clearly it is not.

"Ever wondered how to make an Archive on 4? Here's your chance to find out!

Alan Dein enters the strange world of instructional records where you can teach yourself just about anything - from yodelling to training your budgie to talk.

It all started in 1901 when Polish émigré Jacques Roston harnessed the new technology of sound recording to teach foreign languages, signing up such luminaries as George Bernard Shaw and JRR Tolkien to lend their support.

By the 50s and 60s you could buy LPs on how to do just about anything - from keep fit to playing a musical instrument, relaxation and passing your driving test.

Perhaps the most surprising are those which help you to train your pet budgerigar to talk - with help from Sparkie, Britain's favourite budgie, who supposedly had a vocabulary of over 500 words.

With help from Sparkie, Alan Dein tells the story of instructional records and, along the way, reveals a few of the secrets of how to make an Archive on 4.

Producer: Laurence Grissell. BBC Radio 4 8pm UK Time 18th July 2015

It is cheaper from other suppliers e.g. £24.30 from Speedyhen (but they only deliver to the UK)
