Delivery to my PO Box ~08.23.2009
I ripped the track into the MP3 format below, as the full WAV would have been a 30meg upload.
return address mathematical symbols but some dingbats or windings as well http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2200.pdf
The return address is, as usual, the same as the delivery address but swapping characters, whether just a different font or whether that's a key to decoding something else I don't know.. but either way, the circle with a dot in first and 4th lines is 'E', two vertical bars at the start of lines 2 and 3 is 'P' and so on.

I am resonably sure that the mathmatical symbols on the front of the envelope is Mr. Hance's address. It's the same address as the one listed in the "To" portion of the envelop, only in mathematical symbol form. It's a simple substitution cypher (one symbol=1 letter or number). It's a little hard to tell because some of the symbols merge into each other. The fact that the symbols are mathematical symbols is backed up by the fact that the From address is written on three quadrant log paper (college graphing paper).

The font used on the return address is Euclid Extra, one of the MathType fonts. You can download them here: http://www.dessci.com/en/dl/fonts/ I also meant to mention that Brad G's cyphering is correct, with the exception of capitalization. They had your zip code wrong, a mistake repeated on the 10/1 and 10/2 deliveries but not on the 8/24 return address.A curious observer 02/10/2014
Comments: I got an earworm from that piece: The musical piece on the MP3, is the piece written by Edward Flower. The piece's title is: "The Cherry Tree Carol" "The Cherry Tree Carol" is also the title for the ballad, sung as far back as the 15th century on a latin rite named: "The Feast of Corpus Christi"
