Validity of will

Four years ago my father died leaving a will, which I have a copy. He stated that he left each of his grandchildren £500 and clearly states in the will they are to have it when they reach the age of 21 unless they marry before. The covering letter which the solicitor sent to us with the cheques stated that they are to receive it when they are 18. There is now a big family dispute as one of the children has reached 21 and has been given his money but the family are requesting the interest accrued as he should have had it at 18 according to the covering letter from the solicitor. Surely the will is correct and not the letter.
