# $\rm \LaTeX$ French Letter With Signature

## Background

Same as my recent post Writting Letter With Bibliography.

## Problem

How to add a scanned signature to a $\rm \LaTeX$ document for the lettre class?

## My attempt

Searching “latex letter signature”, I quickly find an article on texblog. If the \name{} has been defined at the beginning of the letter, then adding \forname below the line

\fromsig{\includegraphics[scale=1]{signature.jpg}} \\


will give you another name, and {Your name} will give you the third one. Moreover, the alignment of the sender’s name isn’t right.

According to the documentation of lettre, the \signature{} command accepts only text as its arguments. I try redefining it, but the alignment is still wrong. As a result, I decided to do it the dirty way: I recalled the method of adding the sender’s name at the closing part in Bio Teckna’s model letter. The \begin{center} environment is used. However, to make it look like a French letter, I used \hspace{8cm} to adjust the horizontal spacing.
