Transcript
Complete
This two-page handwritten letter contains some of Tolkien's thoughts on the potential publication of The Hobbit in the USA. Tolkien can make illustrations they have requested, or they might use some other illustrator, but there should not be a mix from multiple artists. He would like to "veto anything from or influenced by the Disney studios" for which he has a "heartfelt loathing."
