Contains a Letter to the Editor on page 9.

This is a reply to a letter by "Habit" published on 16 January 1938. Tolkien sent a short reply to be published in the newspaper, and a longer letter to be forwarded on to "Habit". The longer reply was published without Tolkien's permission.

Reprinted in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien (1981) as Letter No. 25.
