cопроводительное письмо
Explanation:
ad·vo·ca·cy (dv-k-s)
n.
The act of pleading or arguing in favor of something, such as a cause, idea, or policy; active support.

То есть получается, что это letter of advocacy - это письмо, написанное в поддержку чего-то. Я полагаю, что это то же самое, что и cover letter - сопроводительное письмо.

Объяснительное письмо


Explanation:
I believe that "сопроводительное письмо" is also correct, though "объяснительное" may be a little closer to the actual meaning.

рекомендательное письмо


Explanation:
Advocacy - an act of supporting the proposal or cause.

Т.е. по-моему это скорее письмо, содержащее и рекомендацию от кого-либо.

The term ADVOCACY can not have a negative connotation by DEFAULT. It's a positive word but very difficult to interpreter because an EXACT context is crucial.
