APA Style does not have a specific form/ example of this resource.
APA Style cites resources that are somehow archived and accessible to others.
Unless it is a crucial piece of your research, cite in-text:

to his mother: Researching and writing about
gangsters in America. Faculty Colloquia Series.

Manuscript Collections (letters, etc). Sec 7.10:
For collections with multiple letters, you only need to cite the collection in your References list. Your in-text citations should be more descriptive:
