I have edited my earlier post to include the fact that their are at least two fake letters in existence.

If you were to accept that the letters are real (by ignoring all the evidence) then why would Tolkien sign both copies, he would only send one to Pauline.

I don't want to be a pendant here (& I know there are some issues with posting comparison analysis of letters), but as a forum we need to post more images & less links (--or both!). Many links, particularly to eBay, expire; and, trawling through old threads, all one finds is comment(s) with no accompanying images. I've gone back into several threads (including this one) & posted images for future reference. Just a thought, Trotter...

Khamul, I don't want to be a pendant either, but I don't mind being a pedant ...

Wellinghall,
I often think this was a genuine "Khamul, For heaven's sake what a pendant" moment...

Yeh, you laugh it up boys!
You wouldn't have noticed, if it weren't for my pedantry, the letter in question was in fact a different letter, Trotter! *chuckle*
