    To and From

    Hello.
    I am not a teacher.
    I am authorizing someone, suppose Jack, to give a document to someone on my behalf,and get it stamped for example,and collect it.
    which introductory/authorization sentence is correct.

    1-I hereby authorize Jack to deliver and collect the document TO and FROM you.
    2-I hereby authorize Jack to deliver the document TO you and collect it FROM you.

    Thank you for your advice.

    Can the first "you" be omitted in the second sentence?
