TCG Letter #1407 / Carpenter Letter #97a
17 February 1945
Tolkien says that he is finding lectures hard work, and that he is tired. He is surprised that he does not have written notes for Beowulf beyond approx. line 2200 and says that if he had, he has lost them. He saw “Lewis and company” on Tuesday and details his week of lectures, household bill paying, and reading Sellic Spell. He attended an annual dinner, and notes that he had missed the bus three times for it being so full.
