Letter to Bruce Charlton

(Redirected from Bruce Charlton 14 June 1973)

On 14 June 1973, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a per procurationem letter to Bruce Charlton.[1]

[edit] Excerpt

Dear Mr Charlton

Thank you very much for your kind letter. I am delighted that my books have given you pleasure.

THE SILMARILLION is far from complete and I have not looked at it for some considerable time. Therefore I regret that I cannot predict when it will see the light of day.

Yours sincerely,

pp. JRR Tolkien
