A note from J.R.R. Tolkien to a colleague, dated Feb 17, 1958, on his Merton College, Oxford stationary.
'My dear Wordsworth, Tuesday Feb. 25. Dinner at 7:30.
I shall be in my room (Fellows 4) from 7 p.m. onwards. I cannot guarantee any entertainment, but it will be delightful to see you again. Yours J.R.R. T.' In an annotation by the recipient, he notes in reference to the indicated time of 12:45 am, 'Flattering, don't you think, that he should write even before going to bed!'
A lovely piece of ephemera, with a handwritten letter from his son, to authenticate the note and explain the relationship between his father and Tolkien.
