In July, Tolkien was sent proofs for a new edition of The Hobbit. Along with minor corrections, the new version of Chapter 5, "Riddles in the Dark" had been incorporated, which came as a surprise to Tolkien. It had been a long while, said Tolkien, since he had proposed the alteration. Work on the sequel would have been a simpler task with the new version but since he had not heard any more about it he had assumed that it had been ruled out.
