Tolkien informed Cater that his wife had died that morning.  He described her final days, saying that she showed courage and determination, which Cater had mentioned.  Tolkien was utterly bereaved but his family and friends had gathered around in support.  Tolkien was glad that Cater saw Edith still undimmed and said that he would treasure Cater’s 26 November letter.
