And I may be blundering in but.... This isn't really a family history question is it? This is about you and the addressee of that letter I suggest. Suppose you did find something from research without involving them... Would that make your relationship with the addressee better or worse? You need to think about that first.

1960's adoptions

Either way if you continue to investigate someone is going to be upset. Either with the outcome, or most likely getting wind of your search behind their back. I surmise your parent is getting on in age, you don't want to leave it too late, then wish otherwise.
Why don't you take a deep breath, mention the letter then ask direct and get it over with.
(And yes I know just how sensitive this is, and how many deeply unhappy memories the past can hold. But bringing it out in the open can also be a great healer. My eldest child was adopted against my wishes also in the 60s. We have since made contact. I deeply regret the lost years.)
