Incidentally, can anyone read German and translate his letter?
It was in written in Sütterlin, an old script that's fallen out of use a long time ago. Even in the German silent movies of the day they didn't use it anymore when they showed something hand-written the audience was supposed to read.
Eddie also wrote it like someone who's just learned it which made me chuckle. But I admire the effort they put to it. Now if only they could have done a better job with the spoken German, too.

If someone can point me at some HD pictures of the letter I could translate it (if it isn't just gibberish).
