Date21 March 1957
Subject(s)C.S. Lewis's Troubles

Letter 196 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

[edit] Summary

Tolkien believed that Miss Farrer had been much concerned about Jack Lewis’s[notes 1] troubles. Tolkien knew little beyond cautious hints of the extremely discreet Havard. When Tolkien was with Jack they engaged in "literary" talk, which was undimmed by domestic griefs and anxieties.[notes 2]

[edit] Notes

  1. "Jack" was Lewis’s nickname.
  2. Tolkien did not know that on the day he wrote this letter, Lewis married Joy Davidman, thought to be dying.
