I couldn't find anything about this anywhere so I thought I'd post it here.

I ordered the "Pebumbra Soundtrack - Special Edition" from The Sound of Fiction and the booklet in front had a letter inside from Red to her mother from his first day in the mine. Have you seen this before?
The date on the letter says November 1970. Overture happened in 2001(?) so its from about three decades ago.
Wasn't that a discoverable note in the game?

I think that's correct, BUT! It was a bit different wasn't it?

But this letter was not in the game. I took a look at a faq and it had a similar letter written 3 weeks after this to a friend of his:

My Dearest Friend,

How are you? I am as well as can be expected. I have some sad news, though. A
few days ago, there was some kind of collapse, and some of the ceiling of the
cave fell in on me. What scares me is that I was an off limits part of the
mine. They may not look for me here, but if they do, and they find me, I’ll
be in so much trouble!

But don’t think I’ll have to worry about that, because I’m not sure I’ll be
getting out of here.

I don’t mind so much. I’ve been working in the mine for about three weeks
now, and I am really proud that I can send my money home, but it’s pretty
tough work, and so far, you’re the only person that has been nice to me.
Plus, I have some nice company down here. There’s some friendly kind of
creepy crawlies, and some old books I brought from home that I was taking
from the rec room. If you think about it, I was really quite luck to have all
this stuff with me, otherwise I would be bored stiff! As it is, I have
Shakespeare, Bronte, Nietzsche; perfect bedtime reading. Although, I suppose
I might be trapped here long enough that I have to read them twice.

I always used to ask my mum how long people survive without food, and things.
I read how some people can survive in water for over five minutes, and some
people last in the desert for weeks... but she always said you had three
minutes of air, three days of water etc... I suppose I’ll probably find out
soon enough.

I guess if I had to, I could find food around the place... like I said,
there’s all sorts of creatures here, but they’re better off as my friends
than my lunch. I wonder whether I shall starve to death, or go cave crazy
first? Neither sounds too much fun, I guess, but if I had to choose, I’d say
I’d want to go mad.

It sounds like an adventure.
