My letter


Ayele Lankford's insight:

                                                                          June 13,1936

Dear Mom

       Hey mom this is your son writing to you to see how everything is going. Are you still working at the same place? How are you doing on the bills? ill send you some money anyway and i also have some really great news that is going to get you out of your seat.

        As of today you are now the mom of a hollywood actor. I just finished my first movie role the other day and i am really excited about the review it will get. The name of it is gone with the wind and its about a man and a women who get really poor during the war because of the stock market crash.

        Speaking of the war in 1931 Finiancial hardships forces veterans to request money early. The reconstruction finance corporation gave over billion dollars of government loans to big businesses.Their are these two criminals name bonnie & clyde and they are the biggest criminals in america because they decided to rob banks or a living. music has changed alot now a days its a new era with this new music called "Jazz". 

         Now i want to talk to you about hoovervilles and they are shantytowns made from tents or musician who wrote songs illustrating President Herbert Hoover is a "self made man". Depration in the great plains were heightened by th dust bowl. Their has also been many bank closures withdrawing there money.

        So that was a little insight on the decade so far crazy huh? I would say so. i hope everything down there is going good and i havent forgot im still going to send your money.

                                                           Sincerley, Ayele Lankford
