Dear [Recipients Name],

It is with utmost pride that I introduce one of my best friends and the newest addition to our study group, Michael Smith. I believe that he will be a great addition to our small class with his impressive academic achievements. He recently acquired a master's degree in Contemporary American History from one of the most prestigious universities in the state and had had quite a record as a researcher. Please take the time to approach him and make him feel comfortable. I look forward to us starting an excellent relationship with our new member.
