J.R.R. Tolkien
To
Katharine Farrer
Date
7 August 1954
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Partial
Tolkien acknowledged that misprints still existed in Volume I, but nasturtians was deliberate and represented a final triumph over the high-handed printers. Tolkien had consulted the college gardener. It was a crushingly laborious year, said Tolkien. So many things at once needing exclusive attention.

The 2023 revised edition of Letters includes a few introductory paragraphs thanking Farrer profusely for her last letter, and talking about a particularly unflattering review and Tolkien's thoughts on it, and his joy at having friends who have warmly praised his new book.
