TCG Letter #361

J.R.R. Tolkien
Colin Smythe
June 4, 1968
Typed Letter Signed
On April 11, Colin Smythe wrote back to Tolkien, saying he will look for Winter's Tales For Children but hopes Tolkien could provide a new poem, and also expresses hope that The Silmarillion will be published soon.

In this response, Tolkien thinks perhaps he might find a poem about "Westernesse" that would suit. He is leaving Oxford, so Smythe should write to Allen & Unwin moving forward.

Mentioned in "Eorclanstanas or The Hobbitiana" (Precious Stones), M. Hime bookseller catalog, 1980, item #45
