Do I still attend my scheduled start date per my offer letter if I was let go as a temp?

I was working an assignment for a company as a temporary employee and the company extended me an offer letter to start my official first day on the 1st. I was let go as a temp but haven’t been sent anything in regards to the offer letter that

was extended for my start date with the company. Am I still able to start with the company being that I was let go as a temporary employee through a temp agency? They haven’t sent anything to my withdrawing the previous offer letter.

Show up for the start date, but be prepared that they might either tell you to not start or else let you go promptly: in employment at will (the law of this nation) you don't have a guaranty of a job. But the worst they can do is tell you to go home--but if you were going to have a job and don't show, you will lose it. So if you show, you might have a job; if you don't show, you won't; and if you do show the worst that will happen is a bit of awkwardness as they say sorry, but they don't have the position for you.
