Billy the Kid's letters from prison put on display for first time





He was known for being handy with a gun, but an exhibition in New Mexico proves legendary sharpshooter Billy the Kid also knew how to weild pen.

A letter he wrote to the state's governor Lew Wallace will be available for public viewing in the Santa Fe library for the first time.

Billy the Kid was being held in the Santa Fe jail at the time he wrote the letter. Just four months later, the Kid was gunned down by Sheriff Pat Garrett.
