He says he was gonna put me in the movies. Says I was a natural. Soon's he got back to Hollywood he was gonna write to me about it. But the letter never came and she and made her bitter, she says this on pages 93 and 94 chapter 5 "I never got that letter. Always thought my ol' lady stole it. Well, I wasn't gonna stay no place where I couldn't get nowhere or make something of myself, an' where they stole your letters." Otherwise is a bitter and scornful woman who shamelessly uses sex to intimidate the workers. Lennie accidentally murders her when she comes into the barn when he has killed to puppy by petting it to hard. ...read more.
