So: you want to import the letter texts from an external file. Easiest 
solution: instead of simply \input knuth, try this:

 \catcodetable\ctxcatcodes\input knuth

As you can see, changing the catcode regime processes the file correctly. 
“Expansion” means something different in TeX speak.

Other possibilities: write your letter body in xml, or write the letters in 
buffers and use \processTEXbuffer.
