Transcript

Tolkien shoots down any idea of a "Tolkien Award" by Ace Books, and suspects that this is just a way for them to make themselves feel better about denying him royalties. He then makes a great analogy involving pirates to illustrate his point.

In a portion not included in this newly published portionChronology, p. 684[1] Tolkien notes that he is housebound with a very bad cold.

This letter is held at the 'Tolkien–George Allen & Unwin archive, HarperCollins'.
