I wish I could mix/match to get my favorite 8 postcards :) All three sets have cool works, but I don't need to spend that much.

A letter I haven’t seen. Signed by a secretary for Tolkien. Tolkien states that he is no longer doing book signings.

Thanks I have added it to the Letter's Guide, though it will take a while before it is visible, Letter from Tolkien's Secretary to C. Huggett • 18 March 1971 (#2044)

The letter was not written by Tolkien and I expect he did not even know about it, very difficult to see how they arrived at USD 3,500 for this.

I was about to ask the same thing. I guess it doesn't hurt to try and get the money. As they are honest about it being Secretarially signed, they can ask what they want and someone can pay them if they think it's worth it. I feel more likely it will remain unsold.

I agree. I would not pay $3500 for that secretarial letter--not worth it at all.

Interesting item... but that's about it IMO.

Just to note that the subscripted secretarial initials apparently read "JH" — i.e., Joy Hill. (It looks like her handwriting as well, based on what I've seen of it.)
