This letter was from Tolkien to school children in Germany. Tolkien remarks that he "was particularly interested to know that you have not only read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in your own language"

Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull contacted Christopher Tolkien to evaluate the authenticity of the letter. He replied that the letter was genuinely by his father: "entirely characteristic, and signed by him: the signature is unquestionable and in no way out of the ordinary".
