    Re: Business Letter

    Hello Pdonn, welcome to Using English!

    If I'm your PA, and you're out of the office, I sign the letter for you and put p.p. before my name, i.e.


    Yours sincerely

    p.p. MrP

    p.p. stands for the Latin phrase "per procurationem", which means 'by/through the agency of'.

    All the best,

    MrP
