Many thanks to @troccoli for sharing this with us, and for the amazing collection of GN'R memorabilia he has made available on his site. The original images of the newsletter can be found on his site here:
(The newsletter was accompanied by a sheet with GN’R Lies song lyrics, autographed band photo, Geffen's press release for the release of Appetite for Destruction, the interview with Axl in RIP Magazine in April 1989 and Slash’s letter to RIP Magazine in August 1989)

Transcription (spelling of the original):
Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven are hard at it recording the almost forty songs that the band has amassed in the last two years. Sessions have been held at Rumbo, A&M, Take One and One on One in Los Angeles.
Izzy rode his Harley back from Farm Aid in Indianapolis. He journeyed through Memphis, New Orleans and Texas on what he calls “one of the best rides of my life”
Duff built a bar (what else) in his back yard.
Slash has bought a new constrictor for his huge snake tank that fills a considerable part of the ground floor of his home.
Axl has been looking for a cool painting for the record cover, and has been seen in a number of L.A. galleries checking out the weird and the wonderful.

Next time: Studio news!
