Addressing Envelopes
MEN. A man should be addressed as Mr. James J. Wilson, or James J. Wilson, Esq. Either the Mr. or the Esq. may be used, but not the two together. The title belonging to a man should be given. It is not customary to use Mr. or Esq. when Jr. or Sr. is used.
WOMEN. A woman’s name should always have the Miss or Mrs. A woman should never be given her husband’s official title, as Mrs. Judge Wilson. If a woman has a title of her own, she should be addressed as Dr. Minnie Wilson, when the letter is a professional one. If a social letter, this should be Miss Minnie Wilson, or Mrs. Minnie Wilson.
