Letter 143 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

[edit] Summary

Tolkien told Rayner Unwin he would send Book III, the first part of Volume II, carefully corrected. Book IV would follow later. Tolkien expressed some doubt in the title - The Two Towers - as the opposition between Orthanc and Cirith Ungol was completely overshadowed by that of the Dark Tower and Minas Tirith.
