Entry B109 on page 34 reprints the brief extract from a letter to Richard Lupoff first printed in Edgar Rice Burroughs: Master of Adventure (1965). In the extract Tolkien denies any influence from the writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs on the creation of Shelob.

Reprinted in September 1972.

Part of the extract was reprinted in Orcrist (Issue 4, 1969-70).
