Crime in 1930
lester nunnally's insight:

Dear Uncle Mel,

 

           How have you been it’s been along time since I wrote you? Its been rough for me the past couple years. I’m now in a gang to support myself because I use to be an average Joe now I’m among the wealthy and doing well for a man that came from nothing. I’ve come from the Hoover Ville’s eating dog food to a mansion eating lobster. I’m not proud to tell you this but I have to do what I have to do, I worked for the notorious Al Capone who had me look over his money, and his businesses now he is going to jail for various charges. Soon after I had meet up with Bonnie and Clyde the most dangerous couple ever I met them before they had started robbing, and kidnapping people, after they got themselves in the deepest hole with the police I had to drift and look for other ways to get money. I haven’t been able to send any money home to you due to the bank closures they lost a large amount of my money I called them on the horn and they lost it in the stock market. I almost put my paws on somebody I had to calm down and smoke me a snipe, then the dust bowl had hit It destroyed everything in its path I had to adapt to life with a lot of dirt in the air and in my water and food I’ve inhaled dust for over two weeks and I don’t feel as if I could have made it through the horrible storm. A few weeks had past then I moved to Alabama to find new work and I started a new gang their and most of my members where okie’s that I didn’t really trust so I keep my chopper on me in case they tried something slick, me and my crew where about to do a hit a couple but the dick’s and the copper’s where following us from the safe house. So we waited and left the next day to hit a business and take it over, we came in and killed most the people in there and terrorized the owner to give me the business he gave it over quick, so I had to get the place back together so I can open back up I hired a lot of Mexican but they where demanding to much like getting more money so I let them go to get some African Americans that were previously laid off to come work for me for low wages, because they wont argue are demand more to help support themselves. I had got word from my employee that the armored trucks have just arrived to the bank so we pulled up twenty minutes after he called and I had a plan to blow up the back of the bank to get right to the safe but my plan was all wet we blew the fuse and we start grabbing the bags and the police where already in the front of the bank waiting so they busted in shooting they killed two of my men and winged me I got away from the gun fire and ran into a building to hide a while then came out and stop a car to take me to get some help then I fainted. I woke up in a hotel room and a women was laying next to me woke her up asked her how I’d got there with her she said she patched my arm and brung me to her place. I soon left but we keep in contact for a couple months and we settled down and feel in love we made whoopee every night, we even had a child together his name is Thezzelle Washington he is three years old. I tried to stay away from the gang life for a while and started giving money to hobos and bums to help them get back on their feet, but a man named Bruno Hauptmann had kidnapped my son and I was livid I sent out men and a reward for sixty thousand dollars to find my son and the head of Hauptmann they where searching for my son for almost a month and they found him in Kansas city, Missouri due to the trail the kidnapper had left, so I moved to Kansas City to stay up their with my father and mother they don’t know about the life I live, but ill tell them later own in life but right now I need to earn a lot more money so I start a family business a candy shop but the basement led to the boat docks and I transport drugs and alcohol for my other businesses in the area, and uncle Mel I hope to see you in about six months to catch up with you and my little cousins. Don’t tell them I want it to be a surprise see you in six months.
