Frank Agglin, Devil's Scar Penitentiary
My darling daughter,
My first day in prison, time stretches ahead of me, an endless open road. Let the sentence be 'death' and bring this horror to an end.
My girl, I want you to know that I love you. No matter what you think of me, I love you. Please believe that much.
I cannot hope you will be able to believe these other truths - I loved your mother, I truly loved your mother, and I had no dislike for all those other people whose lives I cruelly stole away.
My darling wife, your mother, is lost forever - like a fading flower her beauty is long withered and gone. How I long to atone for my crimes or to turn back time, but that can never be.
I do not ask for your forgiveness. I do not ask for your understanding. I do not forgive or understand myself. Just remember life before that fateful night, and know that you mean everything to me.
Your loving father
