I've no idea if this is what you we referring to; but, if not, I'm hijacking your thread...

It's back again on eBay even though it sold in February:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/J-R-R-TOLKIEN ... tible&hash=item48646331f7

Does anyone else have any issue with the stilted/rushed language used in the letter? It just doesn't read like I imagine Tolkien would write, even were he rushed and not much to be bothered. "I have not now got a recorder" for example.
