I've never heard of it. Chandler was still in Europe studying languages or something in 1906, and, as far as I know, didn't publish anything until several years later--I believe his first publication was a poem in an English journal, but I can't swear to it.

It sounds like the title of an address given by Tolkien, but that was many years later, too. I suppose it might have been something written by Chandler while a student?
