The tape is found in Harpers Ferry, on a desk in house #114. The house is in the raised section to the south of the north gate.
Unidentified Ghoul: I don't know if I'm sick, or I'm dying, but my body has changed. I've sought help, but people laugh at my appearance or turn me away. I'm what people are calling a "ghoul," a name that sickens me to my stomach. I've been chased out of my own home, and now I'm running from place to place hiding like a criminal.
A week ago, I was begging for food and was almost shot by someone who didn't want me near them. Well, I've had enough. I found a note from someone named Lucy Harwick. She claims to run a place where people like me can go to live their life without being afraid. I'm going to head out to Valley Galleria to see if it's true. I hope to god that it is, because I don't know how much more of this I can take.
Behind the scenes
The ghoul's voice in this holotape is noticeably less raspy than other ghouls in the Fallout series. Voice director Kal-El Bogdanove stated this was intentional, as the woman had only recently started experiencing ghoulification.

BillyH666: "One nitpick I have is of the Unknown Ghoul holotape in Harper's Ferry (Safe Haven I think?). Supposed to be a ghoul but the voice is silky smooth. Doesn't seem to match up :P"
TheYoungGriffin: "Havent gotten there yet, but maybe it's because it's still a relatively fresh ghoul. All the ones we meet in later Fallout games are hundreds of years old."
KalElBogdanove: "Hi! Voice director for the game here. You are correct! Light texture is the result of a fresh ghoul. Thanks for playing!"
