Thank you, garm.

It was good to learn that Hooper cited from what was published as letter 300 - I can see that this letter was written in 1968 so it would indeed have been odd to find it in a 1939 book!

Does anyone happen to have both Rehabilitations and Other Essays and Selected Literary Essays? Both appear to contain the essay "The Alliterative Metre", and I wonder if the essays are identical in both books.

(Was thinking of buying Rehabilitations and Other Essays just to check if it quotes from a Tolkien letter, but the cheapest copy goes for £200.00 at Amazon.co.uk!)

I just wanted to share a link to a website I created (with the help of Daniel Helen, UK) some months ago, the Tolkien Index (TI).

Tolkien Index is nothing more (or less) than a page index of names for publications by J.R.R. Tolkien lacking an index (with a focus on Parma Eldalamberon and Vinyar Tengwar).

Although there are some resources on the web which list elvish glosses found in PE and VT, the TI only includes proper names (or what can be thought of as a proper name), i.e., such as found in the HoMe Index (thus also "real-world" names are included). Also note that the TI does not provide any explanations of the names - it will only be of use to those owning the publications.

So far PE17, PE19 and a couple of issues of VT have been indexed.

Hopefully it could be useful to more people than myself! And please let me know if you can think of any improvements, or if you note any errors.

Thank you, Khamul - I'll place a bid on it later - won't go very high, though (gotta save some money for The Art of The Hobbit!)
