Mail applescript?

I'm trying to make a script that gets the newest message in Mail, and sets the message's body to a variable. Something like:
tell application "Mail"
     set messageBodyVariable to (body of (newest message))
end tell
Any ideas?

iPod Touch 4G (or 5G :P), 32GB, iOS 5.1, awaiting jailbreak.

end tell
