The letters “P” and “T” have a special meaning for many people and are commonly used to express prepositions. For example “I live in New York” and “We lived in Chicago” are both ways of saying I lived in New York and we lived in Chicago. In addition they are used in formal written communication such as in a letter or email. In this article we’ll discuss the rules for making use of these two terms more explicitly.

Tracing the Letter P
There is no rule that requires you to write “I live in New York” when you send an email to someone in another location. What’s important is what the subject of the message is. For example an email to a business address should read “I am at work in New York” to a mail to a private residential address should be “I live in Chicago” or “my address is PO Box 9 Arborway, Chicago IL”. If the subject line is the same, then you are free to include it but bear in mind that people can easily change email addresses and you want to make sure you indicate that the message is intended for a particular person who is reading it. You could also include a reminder to check your email from time to time.
Tracing the Letter Q
A useful tip is to think about the subject of your messages as you would the first sentence of any essay or article. What makes your subject important? What makes your message unique? Is there any context that you can add to the main body of your message? Is the focus of your piece tied to anything specific?
Tracing the Letter R
If the main subject of your article or letter is the location where you live then you can save yourself some trouble by using the simple term “I am located in Chicago” in your subject line. This is especially useful when you are sending out more than one piece of mail. If you send out three separate emails you can save yourself the hassle of having to write three different subject lines. “I am located in New York” is clearly less than effective, so “I am located in Chicago” might be a better option.
Tracing the Letter S
Do not forget to indicate that you have read the entire message before you start writing it. This is trifling, but it can save a lot of heartache later on. Even if you did not catch everything, you should have marked that fact down in order to have a good reference back to your original message. Even if you wrote on a relative level that you will try your best to remember what you read.
Tracing the Letter T
Finally, be sure that you save your email address and perhaps a link to your website or sales page. It will make it easier for someone to follow up with you. It shows that you are a person who is willing to be followed up on and that you respect the privacy of those that you are communicating with. Tracing the letter P is very easy when you adhere to the above simple tips.
