C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien on this day in 1944





C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien often met at Oxford's Eastgate Hotel to discuss their latest literary efforts over a drink or a meal.

In a letter dated March 30, 1944, Tolkien noted that Lewis was pestering him to complete his unfinished manuscript, "The Lord of the Rings".


He wrote- "Lunch with C.S.L, quite an outing for me."
