Raymond Hughes's insight:

   Dear, Mama

 

 How have you been, I been doing Good and writing this to let you know about the great depression and the dust bowl because life is hard up here its not no walk in the park its work day and night people dying from the dust storm and not being treat for health problem so there dying one by one jobs are not healthy they are killing have of the works that are working to get healthy. Crimes are out hand people are doing stuff that they shouldn’t be doing like killing , robbing etc. but  life is hard when crimes are committed. Music was like jazz tells about life’s and other things going in the world like crimes people dying there days and other things they can write about. Franklin D. Roosevelt 1882-1945 he was one of the people that help the great depression then other then that he was a cool person. Bu I’m doing good and how are you doing its change since I been here a lot has been different since the shock market crash and people are now going broke and getting there house took by the bank and being poor and other things. But this hard to be here knowing you guys are not here with me and its kind of boring just working all day and not sleeping when you need it and the more you work the more you get sick and die. Well let me know how you and the kids. Movie up here are pretty good and some actors are far out of hand and plus its money to be made and their making it. I have a friend that’s a movie star who’s making money making theses good movies and making things happened good movies and crime type movie. The Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s was one of the worst environmental disasters of the Twentieth Century anywhere in the world. Three million people left their farms on the Great Plains during the drought and half a million migrated to other states, almost all to the West. But the Dust Bowl drought was not meteorologically extreme by the standards of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. Indeed the 1856-65 drought may have involved a more severe drop in precipitation. It was the combination of drought and poor land use practice that created the environmental disaster. The first decade of the 21st Century saw a series of high-profile criminal cases in which the defendant was a bone fide celebrity. Bonnie and Clyde were notorious outlaws, robbers, and criminals who made headlines across the country during the Great Depression. Bonnie Parker was just shy of five feet tall, all of 90 pounds, a part-time waitress and amateur poet from a poor Dallas home who was bored with life and wanted something more. Clyde Barrow was a fast-talking, small-time thief from a similarly destitute Dallas family who hated poverty and wanted to make a name for himself. Together, they became the most notorious crime couple in American history. After the two reunited they began traveling with Raymond Hamilton, a young gunman. Hamilton left them several weeks later, and was replaced by William Daniel Jones in 1932.

 

Sincerely,

Raymond Hughes

Primary Document 3 Pretty Boy Floyd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd (February 3, 1904 – October 22, 1934) was an American bank robber. He operated in the Midwest and West South Central States, and his criminal exploits gained heavy press coverage in the 1930s. Like most other prominent outlaws of that era, he was killed by policemen. He remains a familiar figure in American popular culture, sometimes seen as notorious, but at other times viewed as a tragic figure, partly a victim of hard times.

Floyd was born in Bartow County, Georgia. He grew up in Oklahoma after moving there with his family from Georgia in 1911, and spent considerable time in nearby Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri. He was first arrested at age 18 after he stole $3.50 in coins from a local post office. Three years later he was arrested for a payroll robbery on September 16, 1925 in St. Louis, Missouri and was sentenced to five years in prison, of which he served three and a half.[1][2][3]

When paroled, Floyd vowed that he would never see the inside of another prison. Entering into partnerships with more established criminals in the Kansas City underworld, he committed a series of bank robberies over the next several years; it was during this period that he acquired the nickname "Pretty Boy." According to one account, when the payroll master targeted in a robbery described the three perpetrators to the police, he referred to Floyd as "a mere boy — a pretty boy with apple cheeks." Like his contemporary Baby Face Nelson, Floyd hated his nickname.[1]
