The Hamlet reference is the clue to the letters that you need to open the box -

Hamlet 1 . 3 . 32
Hamlet 8 . 3 . 6
Hamlet 8 . 14 . 4
Hamlet 1 . 12 . X

The clue points to individual letters that are in the letter from Amelinda, but it's not as straight forward as; 1st letter, 3rd letter, 32nd letter, etc.

What it actually means is take the 1st letter, count over three letters from there and that is the 2nd letter, then count over 32 letters from the second letter and that is the 3rd letter -

This is the solution to the first reference, so that you can see what I mean (I'm going to lowercase the letters not used, uppercase the letters used and space out the sentence to make it easier to read -

1-1 - 2 3 1 2 3 4 - 5- 6 7 - 8 9 10 1112 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 - 27 28 29 30 -31
L-a - v-E-r-g-n-e - w-a-s - j- u- s-- t - w -o - n - d - r - o -- u - s - t -- h - i -- s - s - u - m - m - e - r. - w - e -
32
-B-o-t-h

So the first 3 letters are L-E-B and the next letter would be 8 letters over from the B - starting with the "o". The solution is just random letters - it's not meant to spell out a word.
