the timeless love letter ~
wild Bill was in love to the very end ...
having a premonition of his impending death,
he wrote a love letter to his beloved wife ~
excerpts from the historic letter show the true character of the man:
If such should be we never meet again, while firing my last shot, I will gently breathe the name of my wife — Agnes — and with wishes even for my enemies I will make the plunge and try to swim to the other shore.”
"My dearly beloved if I am to die today and never see the sweet face of you I want you to know that I am no great man and am lucky to have such a woman as you."
~ J.B. Hickok Wild Bill
