What does the closing for a letter 'Yours truly' actually mean?
Asked Jan 28, 2009, 05:12 AM
My brother's 7 year old grand daughter was writing a thank you letter. While she required very little assistance in writing the letter, my brother advised her to close the letter with the standard 'yours truly'. She asked "What does that mean Grandpa?" He had never given it any thought and had difficulty explaining it. What does it really mean? He could only come up with that the letter itself was 'yours truly' or actually truly your property now.
