Transcript
Partial
Rayner Unwin had just visited Tolkien, and he thanked Rayner for coming and clearing things up. For the volumes of The Lord of the Rings Tolkien suggested "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The War of the Ring", or if Rayner still preferred, "The Return of the King". The first title fit, especially since the last chapter in the volume was "The Breaking of the Fellowship". Tolkien asked Rayner to excuse the red typewriting. He was saving money by using a type-reel with used up black but hardly used red.
