Who is this letter sent to?

It came from Holland and I suppose Tolkien was writing to someone in Holland. No enveloppe remains, just now it was sent to "reverend father" and the name Miss Tombrock is mentioned.

Anyone any clues?

Here is a postcard signed by Arthur Tolkien.

What I find so strange it was sitting in this enveloppe:

Sent in 1936 from Oxford?? Tolkien's handwriting??

I think it is a strange combination. A card sent from Bloemfontein in 1895 by Tolkien's father, being sent to Holland 41 years later.

Anyone an idea??

You probably know this picture, it was used by John Garth as cover (or a part was) for Tolkien and the Great War.

How many pictures of these exist?

The one I have is an original and is still framed as it hung in Exeter College. I'm curious about how many of those pictures were made and if more have been seen in the past?

And also what would it be worth?

Just stop posting all these pictures of stuff you have signed by Tolkien!
