Unspecified troubles led to the edge of a breakdown for Tolkien and he had been ordered by a doctor to rest. He had gotten Farmer Giles of Ham typed and now submitted it to Allen and Unwin for their consideration, although he admitted it was not long enough for stand-alone publication. Tolkien said that he had begun again on the sequel to The Hobbit – The Lord of the Ring. It was flowing along and had gotten quite out of hand.
