    Smile a question about articles

    'I've just read ( a / the ) referral letter from Dr. Jones.'

    In this example, which article is correct, 'a' or 'the'?
    I guess 'the' is the right answer, but would like to hear native teachers' opinions.

    Re: a question about articles

    Rather depends on the situation. Either is correct

    "I've just read a referral letter from Dr Jones relating to Mrs Brown's case."

    "I've just read the referral letter from Dr Jones about Mrs Brown's mammogram."
