The description for item 487 includes a description of two cartoons with captions. The first was by a student (Sarah Harvey) and had the caption "But Professor, I've been introduced to Grendel's mother!" Tolkien's reply had the caption "But which of them, Madam? He has several in Oxford". The cartoons were accompanied by a letter from Tolkien to Sarah Harvey dated 18 February 1960.
