    Smile Use of 'Having' here.

    hi,

    "He came towards us having looked at our face"
    "I am writing this letter to you having seen todays ads"

    what is the sense one gets when above sentence is read?
    what is the setence exactly mean since Having is used? or what is the meaning of having here?

    Is there anybody there to help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    A Perfect -ing form is used to emphasise that one thing happens before another:
    First, he looked at our faces. Then, he came towards us.
    First, I saw today's ads. Then, I decided to write this letter to you.
