Transcript: 

[partial transcription; text matches the audio, not the original letter]
I don’t know what I want to do and don’t care for anything, except to get you back again; and that I cannot do – yet. How far it seems, sweet heart, till we may live our roseate poem through, as we have dreamed it so long.
I cannot write for the pain of it.
Goodnight, dear Child, good night.
