Beren, by chance did you acquire this letter from the same source as the Arthur Tolkien card you show in another post? Because I find it interesting that the envelope written by JRRT but now associated with the Arthur Tolkien card has a postmark with the same date -- 27 September 1936 -- as the letter to "Reverend Father". If this envelope and the letter in fact are meant to go together, then the letter is to the Reverend Professor Aurelius Pompen, Professor of English at the Catholic University of Nijmegen.
