TCG Letter #558 / Carpenter Letter #196


From
J.R.R. Tolkien
To
Katharine Farrer
Date
21 March 1957
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Partial
Tolkien believed that Mrs Farrer had been much concerned about Jack [C.S.] Lewis’s troubles. Tolkien knew little beyond cautious hints of the extremely discreet Havard.

In the 2023 revised edition of Letters, a brief introductory sentence is restored where Tolkien commiserates with Farrer about her health.

[Note: this letter was written, though Tolkien did not know it, on the day that C. S. Lewis was married, in a Church of England ceremony at her hospital bedside, to Joy Davidman, who was believed to be dying.]
