# How can I write letters in LaTeX?

It is easy to write professional-looking letters using LaTeX. Here's the basic template:

	\documentclass{letter}
\signature{James Tetazoo}
\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{Jack Florey\\
5 East Street\\
New York City, NY\\
12345}

\opening{Dear Jack,}

body of letter here..

\closing{Sincerely,}

\end{letter}
\end{document}


\address defines what will be printed as your return address; \\ is used to separare lines. The address of the recipient is specified in the braces right after \begin{letter}.

If you want to have a "Cc" list at the bottom of your letter, this is easily done. Just put

	\cc{person1\\person2\\person3}


after the \closing{}; there can be as many cc'd people as you want.
