State of Texas document entitled ''Clyde Barrow - Bonnie Parker - Raymond Hamilton'' dated 20 January 1934, just four days after the infamous Eastham prison breakout that embarrassed Texas law enforcement and intensified the manhunt for the fugitives that would result in the deaths of Bonnie & Clyde four months later. Document is signed by Fred Hickman, an Inspector for the Texas State Highway Patrol, who writes to F.J. Blake, the Special Agent in Charge at the U.S. Department of Justice. Hickman summarizes the whereabouts of the Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker gang, in part, ''...Barney Pitts and Mary Chambliss (O'Dare) Pitts rented a room from Mrs. Eula Isler...sometime before Raymond Hamilton was caught in Sherman after the Lewisville Bank...Mrs. Pitts, the mother of Barney Pitts, has recently moved...I was told by a city Police officer this morning about the move and about a raid on this place last week where they captured Mrs. Pitts and her son Walker Pitts, with eight one half gallon containers of Whiskey. Mrs. Pitts was released at the jail when her son admitted ownership of the whiskey...'' Single page document measures 7.75'' x 10.25''. Some toning and hole punches at top. Overall in very good condition.
