Follow this link, and at the bottom of the page it will tell you what you need to write. Essentially it is the initials of the writer following the signature.

Hope this helps someone!

I noticed a "bap/ct on the bottom of a letter sent to me. I am assuming "ct" is the initials of the person who typed the letter, but what does the bap stand for?

Will someone please tell me how to sign a letter that was typed for someone else?
