Hebrew term or phrase: שנת ע\'\'תר\'\'א לפ\'\'ק
The date appears in a letter written in Yiddish. I'm confused by the ע at the front of the year. The client says the letter was written about 1910, but תר''א would be 1841, so much earlier. Which year is it?

Thank you - this is indeed the case! A postmark has been found that gives 1911, which indeed converts to תרעא.
