Thanks to Ray for the nice drawing and his hint on how to obtain the negative driving voltage:

I would feed it from an IC op-amp, with a negative power supply, 
as an inverting amplifier with a gain of 1,7 a +5 signal input
would make -8,5 v to the tube. The negative supply
need not have much current rating, an ICL7660 charge-pump
converter IC would do it well.
(The classic ICL7660 may not quite make -8.5 to -10 volts.)
