Mr. John P. Storm, Vice-President
Indiana Gas and Electric Company
1114 Broad Street
Terre Haute, Indiana 47815

Dear Mr. Storm:

Having served for the past several years as the sole secretary of a
private business, I would like to apply for the position of executive
secretary which you advertised in the Terre Haute Gazette of Sunday,
February 28, 19__.

As secretary to the Benlow Corporation here in Terre Haute, I was
directly responsible to Ms. Alba Jenkins, the company's owner. My
services were generally those of a "gal Friday". In addition to use usual
typing, filing and taking dictation, I was responsible for scheduling all
all of Ms. Jenkins' appointments, screening her telephone calls and
visitors, and organizing her paperwork and correspondence.

Essentially, I did everything I could to make Ms. Jenkins' heavy
responsibilities easier. Thus, I am familiar with the duties of an
executive secretary and believe I am prepared to anticipate and meet
all your expectations. I am confident, too, that, with enthusiasm and
sincere effort, I can make the transition from a small business to
a large corporation smoothly.

I would appreciate your giving me the opportunity to discuss my
qualifications in person. I would be happy to come for a interview at
your convenience, and I can be reached after 5 P.M. at 772-1248.

Sincerely yours,
