Letter 304 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.


After his retirement, Tolkien went to live on the south coast of England to avoid fans. He informs Clyde S. Kilby that Allen & Unwin will forward all his mail, and only a selected few will know the actual address.


  • It is not implied whether Dr. Kilby was among the selected few, but it can be inferred he was not.
  • The address was 19, Lakeside Road, BH13 6 in Poole. The house was known as Woodridings.
