I conceed that that particular record surviving might imply that other records might have survived, but remember that the letter was presented to Sinclair by Rathenn, a member of the Grey Council, so this does not necessarily imply that Sinclair had access to the Ranger archives.
What Sinclair knew about Valen going back in time would depend on what future Sinclair and Zathras (wrt their subjective timelines) would want. Would Sinclair want to know what Valen did, or would he be confident that whatever decision he made was already made (wrt the objective timeline)? Maybe Valen or Zathras deliberately destroyed records except the important ones?</font color=yellow><hr></blockquote>
It is logical Sinclair would have had access to Ranger archives as Ranger One, and probably limited access to those of Grey Council archives as well, at least those of the Religious Cast, via his association with them.
Also, I don't think Sinclair suspected/knew he was to become Valen until he read his letter to himself.
As for either Sinclair or Zathras destroying records, no idea but think it unlikely.
