News from the Shire

That is pretty cool. Thanks to the good offices of wellinghall, I can report that my grandfather published Tolkien!

That is to say, he was editor of The British Esperantist in May 1932, when Tolkien's letter on the language appeared there. It's not The Hobbit, perhaps, but that is not the Butler way. Shy, burrowing creatures, Butlers typically dwell at the periphery - but they're never entirely out of shot.
