This is the nearly-final version of the view of Bag End that Tolkien sketched so many times. Interestingly, there's another small door low in the south-eastern flank of the Hill. The road towards Overhill, which branches off from Hill Lane on the right, above Bagshot Row, is also indicated here. The mill's weather vane has been reduced to something that looks rather like a cross, but it disappeared entirely from the coloured version.
