Letters of Recommendation
Letters of recommendation may be divided into two classes : general and personal. The general letter of recommendation usually opens with the salutation "To Whom It May Concern." It is given to the person requesting it, to use as he sees fit, and must, in courtesy, be delivered to him unsealed. He keeps the original and sends a copy with his application.
The personal letter of recommendation is addressed to some individual or firm and is mailed directly to the person addressed. The first essential of a letter of recommendation is truthfulness. It should not conceal any facts nor overestimate the ability of the applicant. A few brief, pointed statements concerning the character and ability of the applicant will have more weight than a long letter filled with stereotyped expressions.
