TCG Letter #51 / Carpenter Letter #36
10 February 1939
Tolkien had received a royalty check sent by Furth on February 8th for The Hobbit and he thanked him for it, calling it a tonic since he had the influenza. Tolkien said that he would get his stuffThe Lord of the Rings typed and sent to him. He planned to make a special effort to finish it before June 15th since Furth had said that they needed the new story no later than that time to publish it by Christmas.
