JULY 8TH GEN. RAMEY ROSWELL MESSAGE. Researcher for the International UFO Museum and Research Center. He is also head of the computer department of the Eastern NM University in Roswell and spent time in the Army as a criptographer. Through computer enhancement and his experience in deciphering code, Don has been able to read much of the text on the letter in the photo.
The photograph was taken on July 8, 1947 by a news photographer, Bond Johnson. The glossy print Donald used was taken directly from the original negative.
The letter was typed on a teletype which has a fixed width for each letter. This realization helped Don in his task. The deciphered text is below. I have used italics where Don was uncertain about the letter and asterisks where a letter or word is missing. The translation is broken by the lines on the original letter. Some words are missing due to the position of the letter in Ramey's hand and the fold in the letter.
