nope not at all fatal .

relax , i dont think any one is going to ask all PDs are too busy to find out these details but in case anyone asks say that your attending sent this letter to your dean in a sealed envelop and the dean uploaded it for your but obviously as waived as he is not the original letter writer . stick to one fact say you have not seen the letter and be cautious if they try to trick you . i doubt any of this would even happen but we usually over think stuff . nothing wrong in being prepared

good luck , just relax

i guess then just stick to whats happened . say he gave it to you in a seal envelope but you could get in touch with him so you had to upload it .
