Letter 24
Date February 18 1938
Recipient Stanley Unwin
Important Notes

Letter 24 is the twenty-fourth letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.


Tolkien thanked Unwin's child Rayner for his positive feedback on The Long-expected Party, however lamented that he has still not advanced past this first part of a spin-off of The Hobbit.

Tolkien raised C.S. Lewis' Out of the Silent Planet, which Allen & Unwin were considering for production, and gave it his approbation. He quickly specified the normal cause Lewis' work imparted to his own particular unfinished story The Lost Road, and the way that the hero of Out of the Silent Planet imparted his name to Unwin and was a philologist like Tolkien.
