# Removing horizontal lines and adding page number to cover letter template

I would like to use Matthew Miller's LaTeX template for cover letters, but since my cover letter is about 2 pages long, I need to do the following:

1. Remove the horizontal line at the end of each page.
2. Add page numbers to each page.

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

My suggestion is to create your own template, as the letter classes in general are difficult to bend to your will. It's easy and now allows down-to-earth flexibility:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}\sloppy% Just for this example

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr,graphicx,array}

\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}% No footer rule
\fancyfoot[C]{\thepage}% Page number in footer centre
\pagestyle{fancy}% Set general page style to fancy

\fancypagestyle{plain}{%
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}% No footer rule
\fancyfoot[C]{\thepage}% Page number in footer centre
\setlength{\arrayrulewidth}{1pt}%
\begin{tabular}{@{}p{\textwidth}@{}}
\hline
\end{tabular}}}%
}
\AtBeginDocument{\thispagestyle{plain}}% First page has a plain page style

\usepackage{charter}% Use the Charter font for the document text
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}% Typical of letters
\setlength{\parskip}{.5\baselineskip}
\begin{document}

\vspace*{3\baselineskip}

\hfill
\begin{tabular}{l@{}}
\today \\[12pt] % Date
City, State 12345 \\
Phone: (000) 111-1111 \\ % Phone number
\end{tabular}

\bigskip

\begin{tabular}{@{}l}
Mrs. Jane Smith \\ % Addressee of the letter above the to address
Recruitment Officer \\ % To address
The Corporation \\
123 Pleasant Lane \\
City, State 12345
\end{tabular}

\bigskip

Dear Mrs. Smith, % Greeting text

\bigskip

\lipsum[1-10]

\bigskip

\begin{tabular}{@{}l}
Sincerely yours, \\[5\normalbaselineskip]% Closing text
John Smith
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
