Have a look at the framed/setupframed command; they have foregroundstyle and 
foregroundcolor keys; that would be the most idiomatic way to set the style.

You’re working within xml setups, which means that the catcodes are not the 
same as in TeX, which means that the backslash is just a normal character. The 
question is: why would you need TeX commands from an external file? Is this 
where your letter text comes from? You keep us guessing and are not describing 
what your needs are.
