Letters are recurring items and objects in The Legend of Zelda series.
Location and Uses
The Legend of Zelda
In The Legend of Zelda, Link can receive the Letter from an Old Man in a northeast cave of Hyrule. When Link shows the Letter to any Old Woman, they will sell him Water of Life. The Letter reads:
||This heroic lad is an acquaintance of Impa. Please give him aid.
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. She 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 also includes a photograph signed by Christine, which is in reality a photograph of Princess Peach from the Super Mario series.
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, a Letter in a Bottle can be found in Lake Hylia. It is a Letter from Princess Ruto that must be delivered to King Zora in order to gain access to Zora's Fountain.
The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker, Letters addressed to Link are read after being retrieved and are then discarded. A Letter Sorting minigame can also be played in Dragon Roost Island.
Four Swords Adventures
In Four Swords Adventures, Sweetie gives Link a Letter for her boyfriend, meant to repair their relationship. If Link successfully brings the Letter to him in the Village of the Blue Maiden, he will be rewarded with Roc's Feather.
In Twilight Princess, the Postman can deliver up to 16 Letters to Link. They can be stored and viewed in the Collection screen.
In Phantom Hourglass, the Postman will fly to any wobbling Mailbox after Link checks it, reading any letter to him. Fuzo will send a Letter after any four new Big Plays are earned in Battle Mode, informing Link of his prize.
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.

- ↑ "I've got a letter for you, so I'll just jump right in and read it aloud. Oh, wait--that's the way we USED to do things. But no more! Apparently, some folks thought our reading their letters out loud was rude. So now our policy is to just hand-deliver the mail unopened." — Postman (Spirit Tracks)
