Certificate 2 LORs from same author ?

Can I request two LORs from the same LOR author, for example I want to apply for IM and Peds, so can I ask my LOR author ( who is in IM ) to write two letters for me, one specifically for IM ( stating I recommend her for any IM program ) and one general LOR stating as I recommend her for any program as I want to apply for both IM and peds.
Please any one reply.

Yes. You can do that. Since the two LoRs will not be seen by the same residency programs.

I also recommend that the Peds LoR be Peds LoR, not General LoR. I mean the IM attending recommending you for Peds (not general).

This sorts of conflicting with my prior opinion here
Two LoRs from the same author!
