If you're asking as a one-off, one time thing, just copy and paste
everything into LyX's letter writing facility. Treat the graphic as you
would treat any other graphic within LyX.

If you're asking because you want to keep using LibreOffice and
converting to LyX, the answer is don't. LibreOffice is a bug ridden
program that tries to be all things to all people and fails miserably.
You need a 170 IQ and a doctorate to be able to deal with the quirky,
often disappearing or changing styles in LibreOffice.

If a letter is short enough, informal enough, and not of vital value,
and you want to author it in LibreOffice, just print it from
LibreOffice. LibreOffice is a great quick and dirty for anything below
1000 words. If there's any chance a document will grow beyond 1000
words, use LyX or some other genuine authoring environment right from
the start.
