They have letters for him.

Why more than one letter? We know that one of them is from Hamlet – in which he declares he is set naked in the kingdom. But who would the other be from? One of the pirates? Rosencrantz and Guildenstern? One of the sailors with a crush on the King?
Now – I recognize that letters may be standing in for a letter. Or perhaps they’re referring to the letters in the words. In the end, there’s a letter for the king and a letter for the queen that gets given to him as well. Perhaps I am needlessly generating a mystery. But…in the end the sailors seem to have A LETTER for the King. Not letters…
