Transcript
Partial
Writing to his friend, after reading parts of Wisemans letter to G.B. Smith, Tolkien agrees that the group (T.C.B.S.) has drifted apart but that it is in part to them not being able to meet regularly at the moment. he says they should work out what brings them together as a group.

Tolkien also explains that while he believes in the idea of nationalism and is a patriot, he says he is not a militarist, saying that he believes in "home rule". Then notes that some old college friends are visiting next weekend.

This eight-page letter is found among the Tolkien Papers, Bodleian Library, Oxford.
