In Link's Awakening, the Letter is part of the game's Trading Sequence. The Letter is obtained from Christine, a goat from Animal Village, when Link gives her the Hibiscus. This letter is for Mr. Write, and is apparently a love letter. However, the photo that Christine has enclosed is, in fact, a photo of Princess Peach. In exchange for receiving the letter, Mr. Write will give Link a Broom.

In The Wind Waker, letters are carried in the Delivery Bag. More often than not, these letters are to be delivered than received. Curiously they cannot be posted, despite the presence of Mail Boxes on most islands on the Great Sea.

Link never actually receives his mail. The Rito postman will fly to the wobbling postbox after Link checks it, and read the letters to Link. Link can mail the Prize Postcard anytime after receiving it from the Man of Smiles. On the next day, he will have a response on whether he won or lost the drawing. Fuzo will send a letter after any 4 new Big Plays were earned in Battle Mode, informing Link of his prize in waiting.
Letters make a reappearance in Spirit Tracks. The Postman no longer reads them to Link, as there are new policies in place that prevent him from doing so
