Hi,
I sometimes see the phrase "to be send" before what I call a directional phrase like "to Ms. Jackson." Which is correct?

What about:
"The letter is ready to be sent to Ms. Jackson"

Is that right?

Hi,

What about:

"The letter is ready to be sent to Ms. Jackson"

Is that right?

Yes, you can say that.

But more natural is eg The letter for Ms. Jackson is ready.
