    Addressing a Letter

    I am wanting to address a letter to a 3 person partnership.

    The 3 people are Mr G Smith, his wife Mrs H Smith, and their daughter in law Mrs J Smith.

    How should this be shown, i.e

    Mr G, Mrs H & Mrs J.............or Mr G and Mrs's H & J......or how?

    If the letter was to two males i beleive it would be Messrs.

    Is there a plural/alternative title for two femails?

    I would simply write:
    G, H and J Smith

    You've COMPLETELY missed the point in this case, David.
