Two quotes..
from a letter of the Professor to Joanna di Bortudano, dated April 1956:

"I hope you have now 'come by' Vol. III. I am always rather pleased when I hear of somebody being obliged to buy the book ! An author cannot live on library subscriptions. "

"There is a laborious practical side even to high Romance- not that hobbits ever forget that."
