    Default Letter line spacing

    What is the appropriate spacing in a letter between:

    date and name/address
    name/address and salutation
    salutation and letter body
    letter body and closing
    closing and sender name

    Thank you for your help!

    Some of this depends on how much one has to put on a page.

    A short letter usually gets more spacing to help it fill a page. A long letter might get less to save having a few lines on a second page.

    I use:

    date and name/address 1-2
    name/address and salutation 1-2
    salutation and letter body 1
    letter body and closing 1-3
    closing and sender name 1-3

    :wink:
