change texmaker default

here is the default outcome if you open texmaker -->wizard-->letter:
\address{your name and address}
\signature{your signature}
\begin{letter}{name and address of the recipient}
\opening{saying hello}

write your letter here

\closing{saying goodbye}
%\ps{adding a postscript}
%\encl{list of enclosed material}
i am using Texmaker 1.9.1 and fedora 11.

What I want to do is to change input of \address and \signature from default i.e. "your signature" to "advanced\\kolkata".
How can i do that, by editing which file?

I grepped the files in /usr/share/texmaker for 'name and address', and also looked at what files are supplied by my texmaker package. The only hit was the latex html reference. Your simplest option may be to modify the document that the wizard provides and include it or load it instead of using the wizard.
