Abstract

This second major class of letters is closer in form to the charter, for it gives notice of a disposition which has given rise to the consequent instruction or injunction that the letter serves to relate. The notification of the type Sciatis quod or Sciatis me/nos is not diagnostic, but it is usually a signal that we are dealing with letters rather than a charter.
