Letter 84 is the eighty-fourth letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.


Tolkien started composition The Lord of the Rings again yet hit a blunder in synchronizing the developments of Frodo and the others. It took a day or two to make sense of the issue and he expected tedious little changes in numerous parts to alter it. In any event, he said, he had really started Book Five, the last with around ten parts.

The proofreader of the Dublin Review requested some verse or story so Tolkien had sent him Leaf by Niggle.
