Tolkien and his wife had been interested by Christopher Tolkien's record of the Wings Ceremony. He consider how his child had seen and recollected a citation from the Exeter Book, Gnomics. Seeing Anglo-Saxon that Christopher had composed had cheered him.
A night Inklings occasion had occurred. He had come to the Miter at 8, joined C.W. snd the Red Admiral, drank a touch, then joined C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield. C.S. Lewis was profoundly flown, all were in great fettle, and Owen Barfield was the singular case out of many others who could handle C.S. Lewis A most combative night that a pariah may have thought a meeting of fell foes reviling before drawing weapons. The gathering of people had declined to hear C.S. Lewis talk and characterize "Shot". He had said, "In the event that you bite the dust today evening time you'll be cut off knowing less about Chance than you may have." Warnie rejoined, "Each cloud has its silver covering." Barfield did a short play on Jason and Medea, two brilliant pieces were perused, "apparitions" were examined, and the unique way of Hymns had been talked out. Tolkien had stayed until 12:30.
