A Pardon Letter is an official document that assures legitimate clemency for an individual's crime or crimes.
In Red Dead Redemption, Marston can get rid of his bounty by turning them in at a Telegraph Office. Pardon letters can only be used when the player is wanted. They can be found in Gang Hideouts, in looted chests, story missions, and, occasionally, in cracked safes.
Pardon Letters are only available in Single Player mode and cannot be bought in any store.
The player will receive one every time a gang hideout is completed.
It is highly recommended to save pardon letters for very high bounties.
The Pardon Letter can be used to acquire the following trophy/achievement:
