To get a better idea of exactly what we're talking about when it comes to writing a "letter of recommendation", it's always helpful to have a few sample letters to look at.
However, before viewing the samples, it's also helpful to review the definition of a "letter of recommendation" so as to be clear on the differences between that type of letter and a "letter of reference". So, as is detailed on the main page of this Web site:
A "letter of recommendation" is one that is specifically requested by someone, about someone, and therefore is always specifically addressed to a particular requestor. Letters of recommendation are usually employment-related, or college program admission and/or scholarship related. Other letters that also come under the general "letter of recommendation" heading are: commendation letters and performance evaluation letters.
