Transcript: 

I must seek good music. I need transporting to realms of truth and beauty.
Please don't think from all this I am unduly unhappy. I am neutral at the moment. Friends I made here or those who needed me have both gone and I miss them. But so have the bombs, and I miss them.
Well keep well -- keep strong.
Keep peaceful at the core.
Keep self-respect, not centred upon itself. Let others whom you love, have your love, your fun, your companionship and keep your ideals plainly before you.
So very long for now
Eric.
