State your purpose clearly. As early as possible in a letter of introduction, you need to express your reason for writing. What do you want? Why are you writing?.

My friend Tim Gallant, a pastor and a theologian, has recently published an intriguing-looking book entitled Paul's Travail: A Reintroduction to Galatians. I've not read it yet, but after reading a review today I'm certainly going to. Here's an extract from the review:
"Paul's Travail: A Reintroduction to Galatians [is] a verse-by-verse pastoral approach through Galatians that is both scholarly, accessible, and unique. In this work, Gallant provides many valuable insights regarding this very important letter from Paul. He also provides many helpful user-friendly tools for the average reader, including a summary of the entire letter, a fresh translation of the entire letter, a chronological table of the events surrounding the letter, and a clear introduction to the hermeneutical method employed ... In addition to all of this great material, Gallant also offers numerous articles in the appendices related to biblical theology and typology ... this is the kind of commentary which every pastor and teacher of Galatians should have because it is so thorough, scholarly, and accessible."

Dear Ms. Rowe,
I am a friend of Emily Little, and she encouraged me to get in touch with you. I know Emily through a local children’s theater, for which I was a lighting assistant this past semester. I also see her at college music performances, as I am in the orchestra.
I am graduating from Acme College this spring, and am looking for jobs in the Boston area. I am looking for any positions available within the performing arts, specifically theater tech. I would appreciate any recommendations you can offer regarding this job search.
I have attached my resume. Most of my theatrical experience is in lighting and TD; however, I have done everything, from props to stage management.
Thank you for your time. I will call tomorrow to see when you might be available for a brief conversation. I look forward to speaking with you.

Today, the Alliance send a letter of support and gratitude to Senator Shaheen for re-introducing the Heat Efficiency through Applied Technology (HEAT) Act (S.1711) and for her strong leadership on energy-efficiency issues. The HEAT Act would establish a federal framework to help states develop solutions to meet growing energy demands efficiently and economically through the use of CHP and WHP technologies. By addressing the challenges facing CHP and WHP, the HEAT Act will help strengthen local economies and support national energy policy goals. As Senator Shaheen states, “Both combined heat and power systems as well as waste heat to power systems provide clean, efficient and reliable sources of local energy that will reduce pollution, create jobs and help make American businesses more competitive. These technologies are good for our economy and good for our environment, and we should be doing everything we can to spur their use.” The Alliance urges the Senate to take up this bill for consideration promptly and pass it without delay.

Writing a letter of introduction for a job may seem intimidating, but it's purpose is to introduce you and your interest in working for that company. Break it down.
