Tolkien stated that he had worked very hard for a month on the sequel to The Hobbit and had reached Chapter XI. He was thoroughly engrossed in it with all the threads in hand but had to put it aside for an indefinite period. His friend E.V. Gordon had died in the middle of Honours Exams and Tolkien had to finish setting the papers. Tolkien still hoped to submit the sequel early in 1939.
