How would I shift up my 2nd page to the 1st page? There seems to be alot of space left on the 1st page but I cant get the 2nd page to move up to the 1st page.

I tried using \enlargethispage*{-2\baselineskip}, and also playing around with the number, but I cant seem to get it to work.

Thanks. My latex code is below.

enter image description here

% Cover letter using letter.sty
\documentclass{letter} % Uses 10pt
%Use \documentstyle[newcent]{letter} for New Century Schoolbook postscript font
% the following commands control the margins:
\topmargin=-1in    % Make letterhead start about 1 inch from top of page 
\textheight=8in  % text height can be bigger for a longer letter
\oddsidemargin=0pt % leftmargin is 1 inch
\textwidth=6.5in   % textwidth of 6.5in leaves 1 inch for right margin

\begin{document}

\enlargethispage*{-2\baselineskip}

\signature{John Doe}           % name for signature 
\longindentation=0pt                       % needed to get closing flush left
\let\raggedleft\raggedright                % needed to get date flush left


\begin{letter}{\textbf{Address Line} \\
\textbf{Address Line} \\
\textbf{Address Line} \\
Address Line, \\
Address Line, \\
Address Line, \\
Address Line}


\begin{flushleft}
{\large\bf John Doe}
\end{flushleft}
\medskip\hrule height 1pt
\begin{flushright}
\hfill House address \\
\hfill House address \\
\hfill House address \\
\hfill House address \\
\hfill House address \\
\hfill +0123456789\\
\hfill myemail@gmail.com\\

\end{flushright} 
\vfill % forces letterhead to top of page

Change the value of your \textheight to 9 inches.

Thanks Paul. Perfect! –  Gary Aug 24 '12 at 6:33

Use a positive number as argument to \enlargethispage, e.g. \enlargethispage{4\baselineskip}.
