Should I include a cover letter when submitting a story to a literary magazine?

I'm a budding freelance writer. Really.
I'm about to submit a story to a magazine. I'm following all their submission guidelines religiously. However, they don't mention anything about a cover letter. Do I just put the manuscript in the envelope and mail it? If I do include a cover letter, what should I say? If not, do I include information about myself on the manuscript itself?
I know these are elementary questions, but like I said, I'm budding.
