TCG Letter #257 / Carpenter Letter #111

J.R.R. Tolkien
Stanley Unwin
21 September 1947
Tolkien apologizes for the delay in responding to a letter sent in July and explains that he has been preoccupied with philology due to academic commitments. He mentions ongoing revisions to "The Hobbit" and provide Rayner's comments along with a specimen of a re-write of Chapter V. Additionally, he shares Book II of "The Lord of the Rings" for Rayner's feedback, noting that Chapter XIV has been rewritten to align with changes made to Chapter II, now titled 'The Shadow of the Past.'
