J.R.R. Tolkien
To
Hugh Brogan
Date
31 October 1948
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Partial
Tolkien told Brogan that he had gone into "retreat" in the summer and had successfully concluded The Lord of the Rings. It had been read and approved by Rayner Unwin, the original reader of The Hobbit.

As soon as he had a spare copy he would loan one to Brogan, with explanatory matter, alphabets, history, calendars, and genealogies reserved for true "fans". Perhaps by Christmas but he could not promise. The business of earning a living by teaching, delivering lectures, and attending daily meetings interfered sadly with serious work.
