Paul Slater

 My name is Paul Slater and I would very much like to have a few pen pals to correspond with. I'm currently on Texas Death Row and I have been here almost two and a half years. I thought it would be a good time for me to meet a pen friend or two.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm 26 years of age, 5'9" tall and 140 lbs. I'm african american decent. My time is devoted to reading literature on the law. However, there are several very positive factors occuring conerning my case on appeal and hopefully one day I will regain my right full freedom!
I'm pretty sure that a lot of peple wonder what is the worst part of serving a "Death Sentence". For me it's losing so many people to the execution chamber... especially the close respectable people that I consider my friend. Then there's the boredom of state of mind. My reading nor anything I could do in here possibly take the place or pass the time like an important friend on the outside or someone that understands and cares about my walfare and what happpens to me. I don't expect pen pals to only write me about the positive aspects of life. Because I'm very conscious about the tragedies and misfortunes that occur right before my eyes. Nobody is perfect. We have to take the bitter with the sweet. We can share the good times as well as the bad.
Thank you so very much for taking time out of your day to read this. You can write to me directly at the address mentioned below:
