It states the he/she is required to report to the main office on Charles Bridge by 6:30 a.m. on December 15th or the they will face restrictions on their rations or possibly lose their residency within the quarantine zone. In blue handwriting, the receiver wrote "Fuck This!!" over the address and salutation of the letter.
The Drafting Notice is found during the second chapter, "The Quarantine Zone", in the section "The Slums". This artifact can be found after Joel is confronted by a man named Malick while passing through a bus in the slums, in which Tess orders the man to sit down. Upon leaving the bus, walk straight until you come in between a gray table with yellow jugs underneath it on your left and the edge of a canopy on your right. The artifact can be found on the ground in front of the gray table.
