Letter 274 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

[edit] Summary

Tolkien complained that the small map "Part of the Shire" was faulty, needing corrections and additions. Bucklebury Ferry, Brandy Hall, and Crickhollow were 3 miles too far north (about 4 millimeters). It was unfortunate that Brandy Hall, clearly on the river-bank, was placed where the main road ran in front instead of behind it. Also missing was the wood described in "A Short Cut to Mushrooms".[1]
