Texas - The Last State To Abolish Slavery

I would like to open this letter to you honestly. I strongly feel that the best way to get to know someone is by telling them the truth about yourself and your life experiences.

I am on Texas death row and have been fighting this system for over 12 years on appeal and continue to do so. I was born and raised in the Windy City and completed my grammar school and high school years up there. My father moved to Dallas to get a better job. I have never really been fond of this state after learning about its history - which was that it was the last state to abolish slavery.

If anyone decides to write me, your letters would be appreciated, and great respect will be shown to all men or women. Take care.

Sincerely yours,
Jeffery Henri Caldwell
