Do I mention in a cover letter that I've applied to a job before?

I'm applying to a job with a company who I interviewed with last year, but I ended up removing myself from consideration to stay with my current company. Do I address this in my cover letter?
I was living in VT at the time and toying with the idea of moving to Maine, so I applied to a job and got an interview. The interview went really well, I spoke with HR about benefits, etc. Then my old job gave me a promotion to prevent me from leaving, so I spoke with HR and dropped out of the running.
Now I've moved to Maine and am looking for a new job. Do I even mention this in my cover letter? It is the same HR rep. This all happened about a year ago. FWIW its a nursing job.
