Then your file `letter.pdf' has probably size DIN A4.

Keep in mind that LaTeX doesn't tell the output driver the output
page size. You need a package like geometry, typearea,
hyperref, pdftex.def, some classes (KOMA-Script, memoir, ...)
with correct (driver and page size) options,
 especially in case of DVI drivers.
