Letter

A letter is a written message. Letters are usually intended to be received by someone far away (contrast with note). Before widespread availability of typewriters and computers, letters were always written by hand. Nowadays that is still done, mainly for informal letters. The term letter is also used for email messages with a formal letterlike format.

A letter is also a character of the alphabet.

The letter is also a standard US paper size.
