How would I address this letter? Which person?
I am writing a cover letter and it says to address applications to:
John Doe and Jane Doe
c/o Janet Hancock
So who am I addressing it to?
Dear Mr Doe and Ms Doe?
Or Dear Ms. Hancock?

"Dear Mr. and Ms. Doe," or, as you say, "Dear Mr. Doe and Ms. Doe."
Hancock is the person receiving the letter physically, but it is not mail for her. Address it to the people you are actually trying to reach, not the person who will first get it in the mail.

You address it to the Does as they are the ones reading it.
