It might help us if you could manage a picture of the "Sented" word where it arises in the text.
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

Have you looked at mutual matches with the high.Match on ancestry sometimes a more distant relative will be more willing to help search .

Am assuming that the grandaughter doesn't match this person ...which is how you know they are from birth father's side .

My aunt  had a similar level match which we've been trying to analyse
Eventually someone who was a child of an adoptee turned up and solved the mystery .
Mystery match was a full second cousin they  shared great grandparents.

What date are you guessing for the letter?

Was Katherine a child at the time (can you tell from the handwriting?)

Snap Girl Guide

I genuinely have no idea regarding date, hence my curiosity is anyone knew what the new series might be? I don't get the sense that she is a child by her writing, however it is possible based on the slight rambling and over-excitement. When I look at the L, it in fact looks like the way that she does her S' and may have been a mistake/first effort.

Added:  and do you know who 'L' is?

Ah, how interesting! Yes, exactly that. No match with the granddaughter or her relatives but matched to me, my mums half sister (same mum, different dad).

All the other matches are far more distant, but may begin trying to unpick!

Initial thoughts:

Would be really helpful to see the letter and see if we have other suggestions for SENTED - can you reduce the size to be able to attach it?

 - is signed "your loving daughter" and addressed to two people "Dear L" and "To Sented"  So is  "L" her mother?  What was her mother's name?  Seems strange to sign off as a 'loving daughter' but not say Dear Mother/Mum etc
 - refers to "for my letter this week" which sort of suggests there was a weekly contact/letter, was it a letter from school to a relative?  Is that why the name and address are in a different handwriting/ink?
 - the reference to 'stayed up for supper' suggests a child rather than an adult

Why don't you do some cropping to get it to a suitable size?  If you click the Save a Copy button you will still have the original.
