I had a set of three capture templates for memos, a number of years ago.  It was very convenient.  A letter is usually pretty much the same thing.  I don't even know whether I have the original templates around anymore; it should be pretty easy to implement.  IMHO, easier than dealing with all of the header materials you are describing.  I think, anyway.

Two files were invoked: a header and a tail.  Then there were capture template interactively filled addressee and whatever else.  One had a letterhead.  It was, admittedly, a kludge.  A kludge that worked and saved a lot of time.   For memos it's maybe more sensible, as they are quick one-offs, for the most part.

Thanks, weird I didn't think of it. Capture templates are awesome and powerful. Mostly I use them for some tasks, notes and journalling-type entries, not for long-form writing. But as a letters are usually short and writting in one session, capture-templates seem a good fit.
