The Signature in A Business Letter :

The signature is the name of the writer or of the firm or corporation of which he is a part or a representative. An individual signature should be written with a pen. Firm names are usually typewritten and followed by the signature or the initials of the person responsible for the letter together with such word or words as indicate his official capacity.

The signature is written below the complimentary close, beginning at such a point that it will end at the right-hand margin.

When writing to a stranger, a woman should always prefix the title Miss or Mrs. in parenthesis, so that a reply may be properly addressed… (Miss) Alice Brown or (Mrs.) John Dickinson.

A married woman generally uses her husband's name as, (Mrs.) Henry M. Stone. If, however, she prefers to sign her own name, she should also write her husband's name in parenthesis, either directly under her signature or below at the left as, Mary E. Stone (Mrs. Henry M. Stone).

A widow generally uses her Christian name as (Mrs.) Anna M. Hunter.

A woman should never use her husband's title. The wife of a doctor or a minister, for example, uses the name of her husband without his title as, Mrs. C. J. Smith…not Mrs. Dr. C. J. Smith….nor Mrs. Dr. Smith.
