Presumably it is "Dr Hawkins", although Dr Hawkins seems not to
to use titles, as one only puts "Esq." (notice the full-stop) after the
name of somebody
who is male, over 21 and does NOT have a doctorate (or, in the case of a
physician, an MB).
On writing to somebody who has "Esq." after their name one usually
begins a letter:
Dear Mr XXXX
Although my inclination in the case of somebody who seems to be trying
to be pompous by
putting "Esq." after their own name (which one doesn't do; one calls
oneself "Mr" and they address the envelope "Richmond Mathewson. Esq.")
is to address them in one of the following ways:
"Me Old Mucker"
Love, kisses and 'we now live in the 21st century', Mr Richmond Mathewson.
