Looks good. Make sure, you address the cover letter to appropriate USCIS center and then address as Dear Sir/Madam.

Another thing: When you send petitioner's proof of US Citizenship you can either send the certified birth certificate or copy of non-expired US passport. You don't need to send both, just send either one. Also please see a minor change in the bold letters in your sample letter. Hope my reply is helpful to you.

Do we still need to provide beneficiary's/relatives birth cert. or passport copy? I read in the guides that this is not required any more?
