Certificate A problem with LOR!!

Hi all, I have a query. I 've requested a LOR from the author, with whom i did rotation for few weeks and I thought we decided to do it through letter writer portal. But on the last day, he handed me over a LOR in envelope and at the same time, told me he had mailed the same copy of LOR to ERAS few days back as he couldn't do it online. I had already sent him the letter request online and didn't waived it. So I am confused now.
1.Won't the mailed letter take 4-6 weeks to get uploaded to EARS?? Will it be too late?
2.What should i do about the letter request sent in OASIS. How can i cancel it?

3.OR should i just ignore everything and upload the LOR he handed me over??

Any suggestions??
Thanks.

contact ECFMG cause in theory if you sent the electronic request it should be uploaded which is something you will be able to do. Anyway, mailing it does not necessarily take 4-6 weeks. Mine was in the system 1 week after the writer mailed it.
