Tolkien was supplied this letterhead by Allen & Unwin, so that his correspondence would be channeled through them and he could keep his home address private. We've seen examples before. Also, the font matches that of Tolkien's usual typewriter of the period (but the deep indents suggest secretarial typing), and although the form of initials is unusual, we have no doubt that the handwriting is Tolkien's.

B.D.H. Miller was one of Tolkien's B.Litt. students, 1952-1956, working on the Middle English fabliau Dame Sirith - see Chronology, first reference p. 382, last p. 486.
