Mr. Russ Fargnoli,
Hiring Manager
Patterson Railroad Museum
970 Patterson Street
Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Fargnoli:

According to a listing I read on JobBankUSA.com, you're currently looking for an experienced curator for your railroad museum. I have credentials, experience, and interest in this position and would welcome meeting you in person to discuss what you look for in the curators you interview.

I was a successful curator for the Long Branch Locomotive Museum in Long Branch but I have left that position due to a family move. All references and descriptions of my work as curator are included in my attached resume.

If you are interested in speaking with me in person, please call me at 978-786-9878 to arrange a time that works for you. I appreciate your attention to my cover letter and resume and look forward to speaking with you soon.
