Letters of Reference and Recommendation

 The letters that recommend somebody or something with some factual references and information to someone for special purpose are known as the letters of reference and recommendation. They include the information about the quality, qualification, health condition, character. honesty and devotion of the applicant. The person who recommends someone should be completely responsible for the information imparted by his letter.

Gaze at the following examples and try to generalize how to write the letter of references and recommendation:
