Letter from Betty Del Rey, (me)

my letter as a criminal.

Evelyn Castel's insight:

Dear Cousin,

 

      I hope you’re doing well I heard you’re still riding on the rairoads that’s some crazy shit. i miss you tons little cousin. How have you been?  How’s everyone over there? I bet you guys are enjoying the beach right now…

     Things here have been rough. It’s January of 1931 and it’s very hot. There’s been some pretty crazy dust storms west of were I am. They say people are even getting lost it, people are losing their homes to banks. I’m not sure if ill be able to go visit any time soon, don’t want to get caught in a mad storm you know? Life’s tough at the time having to hide from the popo ain’t nothing easy to be doing but you know I enjoy riding, doing what I do. Ever since the stock market crashed 2 years ago, a lot of people have been join gangs robbing banks trying to make a live out here. So I heard of these so called Hoover-villes bums or hobos whatever you wanna call them are building there homes out of trash and scraps, I bet you they even be living dumpsters and stuff.  All because of that damn Herbert Hoover guy…

      So I’m thinking about join John Dillinger and his people I heard they make mad money they are crazy as hell. There’s this young guy they call him Baby Face Nelson boy have I heard about him, they say he’s known for killing more FBI agents than any other American. I ran into a few other fellow criminals in these past 6 months. Ran into Pretty Boy Floyd just the other day he was hiding, him and some other guy had just busted out one their friends, Frank Nash. They called it the Kansas City Massacre so many people killed just to get that guy out. I’m not quiet sure were I’m going to next just robbed a bank in Kansas city I’m currently on my way down south to Texas.

      Don’t want to get locked up again. But I know I can count on Lola and the crew to bust me out, its just a bit difficult cause they’re always on the run as well. It’s funny how Lola would dress up to go visit me funny how know recognized her. She’d always like playing dress up that’s why she was a dancer, before she me Bonnie. But yeah next bank we hit up ill try my best to send some money out west. It’s awesome seeing my face everywhere I go, posters and posters with my name in bold fancy letters. You know I’ve always wanted to be a well-known person, see dreams do come true. Just wish it didn’t say WANTED right above my name, but it’s kind of of cute you know being wanted and what not ha.  

      Met this fella at a bar a few weeks ago named Zayn, he’s a tough guy he’s been riding the rails since he was 7, he started robing gas stations at the age of 15. Hanging around him has brought me a lot of success he seems to know a lot of people so its easy to hide he’s kinda like my good luck charm I don’t plan on getting rid of him any time soon. Its’ hard finding someone with a lot of connections. If anything happens and I have to get rid of him I think ill head back to California.  Lola told us about some banks in Oklahoma they say they should be easy to rob.            

    Sometimes I think about just saving up my money and settling down some were far away and just starting a new life, with a whole new identity, I’ve always liked the name Florencia Italia Castel sounds nice right? I think saw it in a magazine I think its some place in Europe. What do you think I should do? Ever since I killed that fat bastard Evan Nathaniel, everyone’s looking Betty del Rey. Running out of things, to do. Haven’t seen my soon in a year my little Leonardo will be 2 this February, he’s been staying at one evens sisters house’s as soon as me an zany find little Leo ill head straight back to California as Florencia Italia Castel and it will be bye bye better forever. Dude the other day as I was walking back from the store I saw a turtle get hit by a car that thing was spinning like crazy, what I thought was even funnier was that it was Lola driving the car she screamed loud as hell. Well that’s all for now hope I get to see you soon, hopefully ill be over there in a few months.

 

Love, Betty Del Rey
