Letter 9 is the ninth letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.


"Maps &c. for The Hobbit" was titled for this letter. Miss Susan Dagnall, an Oxford graduate, had read an unfinished typescript of The Hobbit and recommended Tolkien offer it for publication (accounts of this are given later in Letters 163, 257 and 294). In this letter the book had been accepted and Tolkien sent redrawn versions of the maps and illustrations to be included in the published volume. He apologised for his "small skill and no experience of preparing such things", but nevertheless he hoped they can be included.
