BONNIE & CLYDE LETTER UP FOR AUCTION

Boston (AP) – Bonnie and Clyde made it quite clear how they felt about a former
member of their gang in a letter they sent to him as he sat in the Dallas County
Jail.

He was a coward, they wrote, and they should have killed him when they had the
chance.

The four-page letter to Raymond Hamilton was written in April 1934 in Bonnie
Parker’s neat cursive and signed by Clyde Barrow. The auction house’s executive
vice president, Robert Livingston said It could fetch more than $40,000 when it’s
sold next month by Boston-based RR Auction,

Livingston said Wednesday, based on the language, experts think Barrow, who
had poor writing skills, likely dictated the letter to Parker.
