[edit] Transcript

Dear Mr. Wheeler,

Thank you for your interest and support. Ballantine Books is about to bring out a paper-back edition revised by myself. This should make it worth the few cents difference in price, of which I shall receive about one third.

With kind regards,
Yours sincerely,
JRR Tolkien
