There is nothing in the czech sentence to require a letter, rather than the letter.

Actually, there is nothing in the Czech sentence that would suggest the translation should be "the" letter, and "the letter" is not accepted.

The letter is at the end of the sentence, it is the new information that the sentence presents. Therefore "the letter" would really require "ten dopis". If it were "Dopis našli..." it would be different, because it is clear we should know about the letter already.
