Thread: Help finding Tolkien letter
The letter I'm remembering was to his son in response to the son asking how to know if a woman he had met was the "right one". The response was basically explaining the foolishness of thinking you could be wise enough to choose the "right" one even if you could line up all the woman you'd ever meet, and how marriage was about making the decision to commit to a particular one. Or something like that.
Is there a place online to find this so I can have my brother check itout?
At six pages of text, it is much too long for me to type out here, even if that was legal, which it isn't.
Therefore I suggest you check your library for a copy of The Letters of J.R.R. Tollkien edited by Humphrey Carpenter with the assistance of Christopher Tolkien. ISBN 0-618-05699-8
