Dear Mr Aidoo
Thank you for your mail. I have given the options some consideration and feel that we should probably progress matters quickly rather than waiting until my doctor permits me to fly again.
I have dismissed the “diplomatic channel” option, the thought of my 3.5 Million dollars competing for space in a diplomatic bag with guns, cocaine and who knows what else is not a comforting one. Employing the services of a local attorney would therefore seem to be the only option, my only concern is can such a person be trusted? I certainly wouldn’t trust a Welsh lawyer with a used plate of whelks, let alone 3.5 Million dollars, but perhaps the profession is held in higher regard in Ghana.
I look forward to your reply,
Ethel Trellis (Mrs.)
