The problem is that the pdf or ps file has both the letter and
envelope.  Sending the pdf by email is thus not "a good thing" since I
want whoever is on the receiving end to see only the letter itself, not
the second page with the envelope.

I'd like to do this within LaTeX, if that's at all possible.  I know
that I can break the ps file into multiple pages, but that's not quite
what I'd like to do.
