The letter was significant because it illustrated Daisy's love for Gatsby and proved her unsure of her marriage to Tom. We can also infer that though Daisy cared for Gatsby, she also cared about Tom and the lifestyle they would enjoy. Daisy got excessively drunk because of that letter..... for the first time in her life. She showed weakness, and even told Jordan to go downstairs and tell everyone she'd changed her mind. It is significant that she didn't, and even more significant that she went through with the wedding.
