Перевод (англ)

Tolkien’s address, in the upper right, is Woodside House, Rednal (wood, S, eye, 500=D, E, house, red [N, A, 50=L])

The rest of the page reads:

You are too bad (U, R, 2, bee, A, 500=D)

I am so sorry you (Hyam, sew, saw, rye, yew)

did not like the (500=D, eye, D, knot, 50=L, “bike” – B, tea, HE)
