TCG Letter #143 / Carpenter Letter #72

J.R.R. Tolkien
To
Christopher Tolkien
Date
31 May 1944
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Partial
Tolkien had been to an Inklings meeting where a chapter of Warnie Lewis's book on Louis XIV had been heard, along with some excerpts from C.S. Lewis's Who Goes Home? (Tolkien suggested should be called Hugo's Home).

The rest of his time (barring chores) had been occupied by a desperate attempt to bring "The Ring" to a suitable pause, Frodo's capture, before he was obliged to perform examining.

Tolkien planned to get his eight new chapters typed and sent to Christopher. However, he had not done any serious writing for a few days, having had to sweat at Section Papers and deal with a punctured bicycle tire.
