I think we may have seen this one before but I'm unsure about the letter for two reasons
1 - That it is not on headed paper, (GA&U had fairly elaborate headed paper at this time which I'm sure would have been used for correspondence of this nature), or is this an example that was only used for Professor Tolkien's correspondence.
2 - I have never seen Tolkien sign his initials like this before.

On the other hand Tolkien must have known Brian Miller as you can see from his obituary here, which gives it some provenance.
