Talk:Letter to an unknown Dutchman
According to Shire Calendar "2 Astron" as mentioned in the letter is equivalent to 25 March in Gregorian Calendar: http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Shire_Calendar —Unsigned comment by Sigurd (talk • contribs).
- I think it's more probable that it refers to 2 April (Astron=April), the day before the postmark on the envelope. --J.R.R. Tolkien 21:37, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
- Tolkien probably wrote it 2 April, as the postmark (3 April) of course would have been put on after it was written and posted. I think this makes it highly likely that 2 Astron here refers to 2 April, and that this letter can therefore be dated 2 April. Now, as there's a dispute over this we should remove the controversial information for the time being. -- 15:09, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to Morgan I found that the envelop is saying 3 april. So the letter was writed in 2 april and sent next day.Problem solved I think. Thank you guys!
