The Letter is a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series. There are many different letters, most of them with names attached to them, like Renado's Letter. However, there are also two unspecific letters in The Legend of Zelda and Link's Awakening, which are commonly referred to as simply Letters.
The Legend of Zelda
In The Legend of Zelda, the Letter is given to Link by the Old Man in a cave in the northeast of Hyrule, a couple screens northwest of the Lost Hills. He instructs him to give it to the Old Woman. As long as Link has the letter, the Old Woman, who can be found in many caves across the world, will sell him a pair of health-recovery potions; the Life Potion and the 2nd Potion in her Potion Shops.
The Letter is a Trading Sequence item in Link's Awakening. Link receives it from the goat-woman named Christine in Animal Village, who asks Link to deliver it to Mr. Write. If he successfully delivers it to Mr. Write, Mr. Write is very happy to receive a letter, as usually he only sends them. As a thank you gift to Link for giving him the letter, Mr. Write gives Link the Broom.
