PART 2 :

At the end of the prohibition, near New Orleans, Dad had a bad affair with the Chicago mob and Frank Costello

They did not want to pay the agreed price for the barrels after the delivery.

Dad found a way to get the money and they were very against him after that.He had to be hide for a while in the Ozark forest. 

Mr Connely told me the story : "You need to be out of that shit, Fynn. The end is always bad with these shooting monsters. They could be sometimes sympathical guys first but all of them are killers..."

I remember he had a strange Polish plane, I saw some parts of the wings in the old barn."It was the cheapest plane, Fynn, and a pretty good one !"

 

In Mississippi, Dad & Mr Connely helped three escaped prisoners near Greenville.
"One of them, he named Ulysse, was an Irish, so we had to help them. We left these guys in the bayous. Well, we spent a very good time : they were totally crazy !" 
Mister Connely laughed until he cried...

Dad came back a few times in Arkansas and Mississippi during his last few years to collect orders and make deliveries...
Indeed, after the end of the prohibition, his life became better. 
But by there, in the fields, life was still very hard for all the people, ever for the white. I know that Mary's parents had still to struggle constantly to get a minimum.

I am weak, sad.

That's  the second day, still nobody to open this damned door.

And still no sound outside.

 

I try to think about beautiful things to keep courage and hope.

MARY - Cincinatti police station 1955

 

They have just come back from the park and said they did not find anyone.
I am pretty sure they did not search him everywhere.They know he is black.They were smiling. I hate them. 

Where is Fynn ? What is this world ? I would like to pick him and go far away, as far as possible

MARY - Washington state - Olympics Peninsula - 1957/1963

 

I decided to leave far away to the Pacific North West Coast.

I have never heard the true story of Fynn.
We received some money from lawers to prevent us to tell more about the story. Anyway there is no proof, no trace, easy to burry the matter.
Some newspapers tried to reveal some events but without any effects.

Too many people are coming ... it is no more the native world here. 
I plan with Nate to move up to the North, more to the West...and with Fynn who is a part of my soul, my dear black friend...

Good heavens, jean marc, I cannot imagine the hours of work it takes to produce these stories. They are interesting and at the same time wry. Loving them and looking forward to more. Thanks!

many thanks Rodger.

 

I plan to continue one day the story in Kodiak island with the story 4 (not 5! I made a typo mistake !) about Misha & Lidia from soviet to kodiak

 

(Not easy to not confuse years and to be consistent with all the details through the long stories...I notice some mistakes when the post are published but it is done and no more possibilities to edit and correct :()
