Kimbrough,

How come you don't write? Is it cause you never wrote? You always said you were a writer. Big man writer don't like to write now.

If it's because I'm in the slammer, don't let that deter you. They may read my letters — all the f***wads in this filth-breeding place — but they don't have heads. As you and me both know, there are other ways to the truth. Like the letter you sent in August. I deciphered it, but damned if anybody but you or me could have understood it.

Anyway, I hope this letter finds you in good spirits and luck. How's that movie project going? You need to break me out of here and let me star in it. (Wink, wink, f*** you, warden. Just joshing.)

But seriously, though…

Your incarcerated partner,

// Rob

P.S. — WRITE BACK, GODDAMMIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can we see the letter Dalton wrote to Rob in jail in August? When was this letter dated?
