Chuckling a bit
over a quote from The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, from a letter written to his son Christopher, dated March 1, 1944:
"Lewis is as energetic and jolly as ever, but getting too much publicity for his or any of our tastes. 'Peterborough', usually fairly reasonable, did him the doubtful honour of a peculiarly misrepresentative and asinine paragraph in the Daily Telegraph of Tuesday last. It began 'Asetic Mr. Lewis' - !! I ask you ! He put away three pints in a very short session we had this morning, and said he was 'going short for Lent.' "
