Got a page long handwritten letter from a JW on the Mailbox

Went to check my mailbox and beside a printed leaflet from the Watch Tower Foundation, there was a handwritten letter, by a JW.
I know they usually want to talk and I have seen other leaflets before, but a handwritten letter is a first.
The content is not addressed to anyone in specific, but seems to be made aware of the fact that probably a catholic would be reading it.

The other day I was reading about how it was traditional in Japan for fresh graduates to make handwritten resumes/cover letters for all companies they wanted to apply during job fairs [1]. The act of sending a cursive letter to someone can be quite a signal.

I almost feel like giving the invite for a talk a chance, it is certainly an attractive presentation and the content of the message has some appeal too, but then it reaches for a conclusion/direction that makes it seem like just another flavor and not something substantively different or better than the other ones available.

Still, gotta appreciate the play, quite well done, I will give them that.

[1] Some applicants paid others to make handwritten copies - is this cheating? - but what can you expect.

It's illegal to place leaflets directly inside of someone's mailbox. It has to be properly mailed with postage attached. Same goes for the handwritten letter.

But yeah, I've written letters like this before.

Sorry we let you down. Oh yeah, sorry for violating the law too, if we did that.

How curious, not sure it is illegal down here, and even if it were, I really don't mind in this case.

Oh yeah, I'm assuming that everyone lives in The Only Country In The World (worth mentioning).
Sorry for that too. Sorry for, just, so many things, really.

How does this work? Is it a way to repair burnt bridges? A way to get peace of mind? Perhaps a way to reach closure?
Too many possibilities, I am lost.
