J.R.R. Tolkien
To
Michael Tolkien
Date
18 March 1941
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Partial
Tolkien told Michael of his mother's family, who were from Worcestershire. Mabel - to whom Michael owed much - was beautiful and full of wit, but died too soon for her age (38 years old), due to disease and religious persecution.

The revised 2023 edition of Letters restores two brief sentences at the top of the letter, where Tolkien mentions that Edith first met the Incledons of his family, and in Worchestershire.
