Dear Mr Ikenga

Did you not receive the email that I asked Chester to send to you? It doesn’t appear that you did, so I had better give you a brief run down of the week’s events.

After receiving the disappointing news from Mr Opara (Cheap flights, Phone Cards, DVDs and Money Transfers) I spent the rest of Monday in the Dog and Bucket drowning my sorrows in gin. At some point in the evening an Unfortunate Incident happened for which I was mistakenly blamed. I was then arrested by PC Morgan and taken to the police station. I was allowed to make a phone call on Tuesday and asked Chester to email you to see if your experience as a Barister could be of any use in helping me avoid wrongful imprisonment. I also asked him to bring me in a few bags of whelks, I don’t know how prisoners are treated in your country Mr Ikenga, but in North Wales the food served in police stations is quite shocking.

Anyway, on Friday morning I was taken to the Court House, where PC Morgan was organizing his “evidence”, which consisted of 27 eight by ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was. I was quite worried by this time, so you can imagine my relief when the Magistrate arrived and I saw that it was Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard and she didn’t even look at the 27 eight by ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was, instead she dismissed the case and, with a few sharp words to PC Morgan on the side, we set off for the Dog and Bucket to celebrate my freedom.

So, after all that I have £128 left. I’ve always had the greatest respect for Mr Opara, but if you dealt with the contract with Bruce in the first place then I suppose that Mr Opara must be mistaken for once. There is another money transfer agent in Caernarfon, I could get the bus there on Monday, but I only have £128 left, would you be able to make up the difference?

Kind regards

Mrs Trellis
