Is the text of the unpublished epilogue to the Lord of the Rings available online?

I've only recently learned that there is an unpublished epilogue to the LOTR. I know it's reproduced in one of Christopher Tolkien's books, but is it available anywhere else? I haven't been able to find it.

Legally? I don't think so. You could google a random phrase from the text to find it online.

Last I checked, all of History of Middle-earth was available (with a facile password) from tolkien.ru. As with most things in HoME, you'll find that there are two different versions (it's in vol 9, Sauron Defeated).

[... Tolkien wrote two different versions of the Epilogue, I meant to say]

Response by poster: Fair point in searching for the phrase; duly added to my Google-fu. Noted on the legality - I meant o specify that in the question. Thanks!
