    Litteraly it transates as "no kind of", but in this context it just means "any".

    As in "I don't see any letter" (assuming that аписьма is a typo and not a real word outside of my limited vocabulary).

    Russian used multiple negatives, unlike standard English. So it's perfectly normal to say

    I don't see no letter.

    What [or: what kind of] letter do you see?
    Какое письмо ты видишь?

    I don't see any letter.
    Я не вижу никакого письма.
