Sunday Nove[m]ber the Thirtieth
Dear Mrs. Farrer:
Of course I will sign your copy of the Hobbit. I am honoured by the request. It is good news that the book is obtainable again.
The next book will co[n]tain more detailed information about runes and other alphabets in respo[n]se to many enquiries. In the meantime while the great work is being finished I wonder if you would like a proper key to the special dwarvish adaptation of the English runic alphabet only part of which appears in the Hobbit including the cover.
We enjoyed last Monday evening very much and hope for a return match soon.
J. R. R. Tolkien
