[page 2] Letter to Tom Bombadil: You seem very confused in your labeling of berries. Raspberries (red) - These are berries which grow on bushes approximately 4 feet high. These bushes grow on high ground. Not in swamps or bogs. The berries are quite easily into the hand when ripe. Raspberries (black) - The bushes are the same but a tifle shorter and grow in a thick mass. These bushes also grown on high ground. Berries are the same except for color. Huckleberries - The berreis and bushes are the same in appearance but there is one important difference. _Huckleberries grow in swamps, bogs, and low lands._ Blackberrries - these grow in dense thickets in fields. The bushes are short about 2 or 3 feet tall, and have large, long berries, (larger than black raspberries) with lots of seeds. [page 3] Oh, one final note: Yellow rapberries - these are much like red rapsberries only they are a golden yellow color (like corn silk). These berries are the rarest and juciest of the raspberry breed. These berries are found growing among red and black raspberries often in the same thickets. Never are they found growing among red and black raspberries often in the same thickets. Never are they found near huckleberries. Thank you for listening to my explanation of the differences. I learned these differences early as I was raised on a raspberry range with an adjoining huckleberry swamp. Your servant, Donnamira Took
