Dear Ernest Shackleton, I believe I can be the best person for this job. I have served and cooked for some of the most finest places and most famous people. I am writing to you as I wish to be the cook for your expedition. My characteristics include being ambitious, creative and quiet. Whatever you want me to cook I shall do just that: I follow all instructions. For experience I have cooked for Scott on one of his missions. As well as a great cook I also have many other talents- they include looking after animals and doing photography. I hope you consider me as your cook. Yours faithfully, Charles J Green.
