(did you mean Carpenter's Letter #346?)

TCG Letter #346 / Carpenter Letter #220a

J.R.R. Tolkien
Naomi Mitchison
8 November 1959
Autograph Letter Signed
Writing to Naomi Mitchison, Tolkien apologizes that he has not been able to see her. He and Edith had gone away to Beournemouth and her letters, twice delayed, had not reached him in time to let her know. He says that writing while away is not easy, but then mentions that much of the early part of The Lord of the Rings was written in Sidmouth.

He hopes that his return home will be with some renewed energy.
