From
G.B. Smith
To
J.R.R. Tolkien
Date
?15 (possibly, less likely, 22) March 1915
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Unknown
Further to Smith's earlier letter ( Letter from G.B. Smith to J.R.R. Tolkien • ?10 March 1915 (#1203)) and Tolkien's assumed reply with typewritten verse ( Letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to G.B. Smith • ?10-15 March (#1206)), Smith replies that he has received Tolkien's typed verse. He makes comments on 'The Sea-Song of an Elder Day', 'Outside', 'As Two Fair Trees', and 'Why the Man in the Moon Came Down Too Soon'.

Hammond and Scull suggest as a possibility that Tolkien revising his EƤrendel poem on, 17-18 March, might be in response to Smith's letter (entry for 17-18 March 1915).
