hi wendy,

not exactly the workflow you suggested, but pdfpages might work for  
you. try a simple setup like the following:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[papersize={7in,10in}]{geometry}
\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{document}
\pagestyle{empty}

\includepdf[noautoscale=true]{OriginalLettersizeFile}

\end{document}

you can adjust the margins with "delta" and "offset", but it might  
become tricky if even and odd pages differ. if so, maybe that's  
something you could tweak in the original?

cheers,
jan
