If i will sign a let­ter by “dic­tated by Mr. So and SO ” do i need to write my name under it and then sign?

  1. Gregg Reference Manual: An admin­is­tra­tive assistant/secretary who signs a let­ter at the dictator’s request usu­ally signs the boss’s name and then adds his or her ini­tials. But if the boss prefers, it’s okay to sign the let­ter in your name.

    Other ref­er­ences suggest:

    J.Doe (your name)

    p.p. D.Doe (boss’s name)

    (p.p. stands for “for and on behalf of”)

    I couldn’t find one rule that was cast in concrete.
