Transcript reading in full: Bob, It was a nice trip from it took a lot out of me. Might' break with Raymond (he doesn't have the right dedication if you know what I mean); I might start doing my own thing - come to think of it that's what I've been doing. I'm into film business more now including screen writing - sharping up your kicking and getting your head together, I might be able in the near future write something for you and I to do, maybe some thing small then building up.
Of course if it cannot be don't it's only natural. You know me, just rapping. One thing for certain, we won't do each other wrong. The address on the envelope was written in Linda Lee's hand. Expected wear and soiling to the envelope.
While it has been well documented that actor and famed martial artist, Bruce Lee, enjoyed smoking and ingesting weed, but it has only recently come to light that he may have had a more serious drug problem. Letters such as this one have referenced Lee seeking out supplies of "C", or "coke" and "coca-cola". With Hong Kong's strict drug laws, Lee had to work out a system with Baker in order to gain access to the drug, whether it was under a false name or hiding it in innocuous items. In November 1972, Lee was offered a starring role in Warner Brothers' "Enter the Dragon", and filming began in Hong Kong in February 1973.
Tragically, just a few months after the completion of the film, and six days before its July 26, 1973 release, Lee died from an allergic reaction to the pain medication he was taking.
