Hi, I was reading this essay that my English teacher gave on "How Lanyon is presented in 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde'?' and there's a part which states, "The convention of letters and documents that by now makes up a weight of unspoken information serves this end perfectly." This sentence is in regard to the quote, " if you insist upon an explanation, you will have understood that these arrangements are of capital importance." and is said by Jekyll. If anyone would be able to explain to me what the sentence means, I just can't seem to wrap my head around it. Thank you.

Isn't it just saying that the letters give the information that the Utterson could not find out for himself that is why they are so important. Jekyll and Lanyon have their information in the form of a letter because they can't tell/ won't tell the information themselves.
This is just my interpretation, correct me if i am wrong
