TCG Letter #1683

J.R.R. Tolkien
Rayner Unwin
27 May 1958
Tolkien writes to Rayner Unwin, including a letter with a sheet of answers to be forwarded to Nancy Smith. Letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to Nancy Smith • 27 May 1958 (#338)[1]

He has been waylaid by many bothers and will get back to the story-line which has been neglected. He has already found use for the index, and says that it will be even more useful when he is able to return to the Silmarillion. He notes that the Appendices to the Lord of the Rings has gained much interest from readers based on his correspondence.

He laments the poor quality of the story-line from Zimmerman and offers more on his thoughts.

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