Beren,
You have quite an impressive collection and nice find. You sure know how to make a fellow Tolkien collector jealous. :) Smith of Wootton Major is my favorite Tolkien tale (other than the LOTR). I wrote my MA thesis on it, and I'm teaching it in my Tolkien/Lewis class this semester.

Great news! I did check the size of the letter (pleed together) and the enveloppe, and they match perfectly.

This is really amazing; an envelope and a letter coming back together like this. Wonderful and thanks Wayne. I still cannot believe I have the items here for over a year and never did make the connection...

Great I decided to scan the items and ask about them. This is very wonderful... i'm happy and stunned. So, as of now they are re-united.

will be checking it out this evening.. now that would be a pleasant surprise! it would mean that I can reunite two items after more then 6 years (or more before) of separation.

Would that link the card to the letter? or Tolkien's father and Tolkien had the same connection??

The envelope is addressed not only to "Professor" but to "Rev. Professor" (indeed, to "Rev. Professor Dr."). The "Rev." in addition to the postmark date makes it very suggestive.

If the envelope does belong with the letter, it would seem, then, that they once had a common owner but were separated in the marketplace. Such things do happen.
