TCG Letter #107

J.R.R. Tolkien
Kenneth Sisam
28 May 1938
Autograph Letter Signed
Writing to Sisam, Tolkien opens by noting that he received a card from Turville-Petre, who would be leaving for Iceland, most likely on 5 June. He suggets that even if proofs for Turville-Petre's Viga-Glúms Saga are not available by then, he still thinks it would be good to know what the estimated page count is. He expects he will see him the following week and will discuss this matter with him.
