(San Antonio Express-News) 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. It could fetch more than $40,000 when it's sold next month by Boston-based RR Auction, said the auction house's executive vice president, Robert Livingston.

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