Description: Toliden J.R.R. Autograph letter signed to P. Haywood reflecting on the success of The Hobbit and looking forward to writing about other Middle English legends It is a great pleasure to an author to hear of his success in giving pleasure I find it most interesting to hear comments favourable or adverse. I have in fact had a very large number of letters But I supposed that if I had to sum them up I should learnthat every part of the books was to some readers its particular flaw and to others its special merit noting that he shall not "write any more about Hobbits or any characters in this Tale but that he hopes when professional tasks allows to put into order the more Eivish legends of the earlier Ages a probable reference to The Silmarillion, the romance which acted as a backdrop to both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and which Tolkien never completed in his lifetime 1 Page 4to with the autograph envelope 9 April 1957
