Agree by letter to a friend (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tally

Here is my best explanation:

'agree' is the definition.

('tally' can be a synonym of 'agree')

'letter to a friend' is the subsidiary indication.

'letter' becomes 't' (**).

'to' says to put letters next to each other.

'a friend' becomes 'ally' ('ally' can be a synonym of 'friend').

't'+'ally'='tally'

'by' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for tally that I've seen before include "highly?", "Current score; agree", "Square", "Count, add up", "Match - score", "Total score", "Agree - count", "Running total", "Score; correspond" and "Reckon up".)
