Letters to Al
Capone from Torrio
I can’t believe Big Jim’s business is actually a big success.
I talked to my finical advisor and he said that were earning an estimated 4 million a year, I’m racking in the big bucks.
Anyways I wrote to you about the family, and your job. I know that with you and Mae and the baby and all, you don’t
have the finical support you need. So I’m being nice and offering you the job of your dreams. I just opened three new
brothels; I need you to manage them. How does 50,000 bucks sound to manage them for about a year? You think about it and write
back okay. This is a big window of opportunity for you al.
Your old friend, Torrio
Mae thought over it. We decided that she and the baby would move to Chicago and ill take the job. Don’t think it’s
for you or me; it’s for Mae and the baby. Ill find
you once we get there, don’t worry, I will find you.
From your friend,
