I'm assuming that you are starting each letter in a page sequence with an 
initial-page-number="1" to reset it each time.

Put a unique id= at the end of each letter ... when you cite each id in the 
summary, it uses the page number as calculated in that page sequence, so 
you should be getting what you want.

I hope this helps.
