  • Yes if you intend to distribute the letter to people other than it is addressed to.
  • From what I have seen it is cc: at the end of the letter.
  • 1-6-2017 It is cc: (with a colon) and it stands for "carbon copy". That means the typist puts two sheets of paper in her typewriter with a sheet of special paper treated with powdered carbon between them. Then when she typed, the keys would make the carbon stick to the sheet underneath, and you would have an exact copy of the letter for your files or to send to someone else. Carbon paper is almost forgotten now, but the code lives on.
