I think when Jax was all fired up about how one man can't fix it all, Piney wanted him to realize that JT was the one that made the club how it was (good) before Clay took over, and Clay made it how it is today (bad).
I think Piney was telling him where the letters are. If he finds his dad (at the cemetary ofc) he will see who he was (read the letters, see what kind of man he was and what he was trying to accompish)
