Transcript
Partial
Lewis had been traveling around England giving talks on Christian religion to RAF stations and had become ill. Tolkien was sorry to hear that Lewis had been sick, and with no U.Q. to suggest it was his final illness! Their Wednesday meetings must be a duty since there seemed to be so many obstacles and fiendish devices opposing it.

Tolkien feared that Lewis was attempting too much and was tiring himself into an easy victim for sicknesses. He hoped to persuade Lewis to reduce his travels to help with the cadets. Tolkien's efforts had not prevailed and he needed Lewis.
