Re: Letter to Roscoe, March 12, 1951 Gilchrist,Tx. Everhards and Howk battle!
JJ. is past doing anything to help us now. Nobody wants JJ
So say not one word to anybody of this until I have the new house built JJ well guarded and where he will die unquestioned and in peace
So, JJ is awfully weak and low. The nurses give up. The shades are kept down. Apparently all they give him is DOPE so he sleeps all the time. They can do nothing more for him..JJ cusses the E's, all the nurses and is past anything in way of help for himself or us.
I still say Dalton got way more than he ever bargained for in all of this mess...Pitiful according to Howk at this point and this was in March of 1951...
