Transcript: 

If still in doubt, take it, and I will promise not to speak to you after the war.
Meanwhile, I'd rather you do not even tell your mother, but you are chums, so if you do, tell her I'll unravel her turtle neck sweater if she as much as breathes a word to anyone even to me.
So pick up your crochets, stave off base time, and beat everyone else eight to the bar, while I quaver in full measure awaiting your acceleration to a grande finale.
Your fellow artist
Eric
You don't have to write a bread and butter letter either -- I hate em as much as you do. (Oh let's change the subject shall we)
