It’s been a whole god dang month since it happened n’ the guys won’t hear another word ‘bout it so I’m goin’ to write in this here book ‘cause I think I’m going to go crazy if I don’t get this off a my chest one way or another.
I think “at Curley thought I’d done it “cause I’s on his side, but I done it “cause Lennie’d be better off this way. I shot him right in the back a the neck jus’ like Kandy’s dog had been, with no quiverin’ or pain.

At this point, I don’t really know what to think ‘bout what I done, but what I do know is that in the end it was better for Lennie. He had no sufferin’ an’ no fear put into him, an’ this way he got a think ‘bout things like rabbits an’ things that make him happy before he bit the dust. All I know is, wherever he is now, it’s a hell of a...
