    Can you show me an example of using "pp" in a letter - signing for the individual who is actually sending the letter?

    At the bottom of the letter (Under: Your Sincrely), type the name of the person who should have signed the letter.

    Then, before the name of the person write: pp Then you can place your signature.

    Example:


    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Yours Sincerely

    ..... Philip Morgan

    (Write pp on the dotted lines)

    pp
    1 pp
    pp is written before a person's name at the bottom of a formal or business letter in order to indicate that they have signed the letter on behalf of the person whose name appears before theirs.
    ...J.R. Adams, pp D. Philips.


    2 pp
    pp. is the plural of `p.' and means `pages'. (WRITTEN)
    See chapter 6, pp. 137-41.

    Normally your signature will go above the "pp John Doe".
