RecipientWilliam Foster
DateDecember 29, 1966
Subject(s)Request of interview

Letter 293 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.


William Foster, a journalist for The Scotsman, had requested an interview. Tolkien prizes The Scotsman, but states that he cannot give interviews due to time constraints. New interviews would be when his new book came out.


  • An interview with Foster was published in The Scotsman of March 25, 1967, so apparently the Professor found time.
