In The Legend of Zelda, Link can receive the Letter from the Letter-Entrusting Old Man in a northeast cave of Hyrule. When Link shows the Letter to various Old Women, they will sell him Water of Life.
The Letter is the ninth item in the Trading Sequence in Link's Awakening. It is received from Christine the Goat in Animal Village after giving her the Hibiscus, who gives Link the task of delivering her Letter to Mr. Write in western Goponga Swamp. As thanks for his efforts, Mr. Write gives Link his Broom in exchange.

The letter must be delivered to King Zora in order to gain access to Zora's Fountain.
In Majora's Mask, Link can receive the Letter to Kafei from Anju, which must be deposited in a Mailbox. Once Kafei receives it, he gives Link the Pendant of Memories in exchange. The young hero can also receive the Special Delivery to Mama from the Man from the Curiosity Shop. The letter must be delivered to Madame Aroma inside the Milk Bar. If Link delivers the letter himself, he will receive a Bottle with Chateau Romani. If Link gives the letter to the Postman instead, he will receive the Postman's Hat after the letter is delivered.

In Phantom Hourglass, the Postman will fly to any wobbling Mailbox after Link checks it, reading any letter to him. Link can mail Prize Postcards after receiving any from the Man of Smiles. On the next day, he will have a response on whether he won or lost the drawing. Fuzo will also send a letter after any 4 new Big Plays were earned in Battle Mode, informing Link of his prize. Link can also obtain Jolene's Letter, which must be delivered to her siste, Joanne.
In Spirit Tracks, the Postman no longer reads letters to Link, as there are new policies in place that prevent him from doing so. They now can be stored and read in the Collection screen.
