Quoting <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbreviation" rel="nofollow">Wikipedia</a> :
In Latin, and continuing to the derivative forms in European languages as well as English, single-letter abbreviations had the plural being a doubling of the letter for note-taking. Most of these deal with writing and publishing.
The rest of the wp article discusses the use of the final period as well (cf "History" section).
