Maybe this not exactly what you wanted, but I think it comes close:

\documentclass{letter}
\begin{document}

\begin{letter}

The City of Winnipeg\footnote{This information can be found at
\textsf{http://www.winnipeg.ca}} is located at the junction of the Red
and Assiniboine Rivers, almost at the geographic centre of North
America. Winnipeg is situated in Latitude 49 degrees 54 minutes North,
Longitude 97 degrees 8 minutes West, 64 km south of Lake Winnipeg and
97 km north of the boundary line between Canada and the United States
of America, almost midway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and
at an altitude of 232 m above the seaboard level of New York.

\end{letter}

\end{document}

Cheers, Jan-Martin
