Query about Two Novels?

I have written two novels - both of which I would like to send a query about. Do I write two separate letters or include both novels in one letter?

I've often gotten this question in writers' groups online, or the similar one, "Which should I query about first?"

I always tell authors to query about their strongest project and not to mention the second. Getting an agent to pay attention to one project is hard enough. Tossing two in their direction is more likely to shorten your odds than improve them.
