Can I say "estar en una carta"?

"En la carta de Héctor van a estar unos datos importantes."

Is the use of "estar" correct in this sentence?

Gracias por adelanto.

"Gracias por adelantado".

The use of "estar" is correct. That's where the data will be.

·Voy a estar en el restaurante.
·Estaremos en casa.

Edit: Your thread title has been corrected from "Can I say "estar en la un carta"?" to "Can I say estar en una carta?"
Either "la" or "una". Never "en la una carta".... and "carta" is a feminine.

Thank you for correcting my other mistake too! :3

The 'la un' was a typo.
