Actual examples of peer recommendations to Dartmouth?

My friend who's writing mine may need one. I have yet to find a single example on the Internet, so if you've seen any, please show me. Also, if you've written one in the past and are allowed to share it (I'm not sure what the policy is), that would be helpful as well.

    You shouldn't need to follow a set example. Just think for yourself. You're writing a letter about your friend. Explain some attributes and then explicate how and when these characteristics were shown. In terms of how it's written, it's basically the same thing as writing a Common App essay but about and for someone else.
