Transcript

Christopher had arrived in his training camp in South Africa and letters were beginning to flow again between him and his father. Tolkien missed his son but reported that things had begun to be easier for him.

Since the letter did not get sent Tolkien added more on April 15th. At a meeting at Magdalen with Lewis, Williams, Warren H. Lewis, and the Useless Quack, they had heard W.H. Lewis read from his projected book on Louis XIV.

Tolkien had managed to get Frodo nearly to the gates of Mordor. He told of other incidents in his life.
