(NEW YORK) —  The family of James Foley, the American journalist who was executed by ISIS, posted the text of a letter that Foley was able to sneak past his captors and send to them in a most unusual way.

In the letter, which his family shared to their Facebook page Sunday, Foley says he used memories of “great family times” to take him far from his prison.

“Dreams of family and friends take me away and happiness fills my heart,” he says.

According to the post, Foley had a fellow hostage who was about to be released memorize the letter. That person called Foley’s mother shortly after his released and dictated it to her.
