Could someone tell me what he says in the beginning?
I don't remember the exact, but believe it is what he wrote down at the end... His last thoughts, likely to his family.
Did you forget it, or did you miss it?
I may not get it all, or exactly right, but what I remember is this:
He's writing to people who seem to me to be his grown kids.
'July. All is lost. I have a half day of rations left. I want you to know that I tried to do the right thing by you, tried to help you and others, tried to give you what you needed, tried to be a good person. I didn't always succeed, but I want you to know I tried.
I fought to the end. I wanted you to know that. I want you to have the best life. I will miss you."
That's the gist of it, I think.
Thanks, that sounds exactly right! :)
Oh, and a big thing he said that I'd forgotten:
He also says, "I'm sorry." A couple of times. He also says he had tried to be a good person, a kind person, a loving person.
