Question about English (UK)

I am asking native speakers for some help:)
I've come across three versions of the famous quote which is attributed to Cicero, B.Pascal, M.Twain, or T.S.Eliot.
It includes Conditionals
1st version - "If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter."
2nd version - "If I had more time, I would write a shorter letter."
3rd version - "If I'd had more time, I would have written a shorter letter."
********
the 2nd and the 3rd would be fine I guess...
The 1st version is Mixed Conditional but MY QUESTION is that if the 1st version makes any sense in that case?
Thank you!
