There was no news of her lover's recapture, for Clyde Barrow had got to Nokomis, Illinois, from where he sent a telegram to Bonnie telling her that he was safe and praising her part in the escape from Waco Jail. 58 THE STRANGE HISTORY OF BONNIE AND CLYDE Bonnie was thrilled by Clyde's flattery and, according to her mother (who now seemed to know about the escape), probably saw herself as a successor to the famous woman bandit Belle Starr.
In their games as Western outlaws, it was always Clyde Barrow who took the part of the leading gunfighter, usually Jesse James, and the long-suffering Nell had to be content with the part of the coward or, when the game was cowboys and Indians, a redskin. Nell, five years older than Clyde, was not altogether happy with this arrangement, ''but Clyde was going to be the big shot if we played, and if I kicked about it, we didn't play. " Both Nell and Clyde hated school, but it was not until Clyde reached school age that Nell was persuaded to play truant; it 36 THE STRANGE HISTORY OF BONNIE AND CLYDE had never even occurred to her before.
According to Cousin Mary, Bonnie cried with relief when she read the story but neither of the women could relax despite their lack of sleep the previous night. Bonnie talked continuously about her Clyde: "He wasn't a bad boy ... he just hadn't a chance. If he got out of this mess and safely away, she'd get a divorce, go to him, and marry him. They would go to some far-off place and everything would be all right. Clyde wasn't ever going to do anything to get into trouble again. " The two women spent another restless night.
