At no stage did I complain about the fee to the shipping company. I simply suggested that it might be quicker for you to pay it rather than for me to spend time seeking out a Western Union office. As soon as you explained about your poor father and his medical bills and how they left you with so much month at the end of the money I was entirely happy to pay the full amount myself. I am not short of money Mr. Loukas and fail to see why you imagine that I am. This entire transaction could have been completed by now were it not for your rather bizzare behaviour. What will happen if your sister-in-law DOES find out about this transaction? I would imagine she would expect a cut which would lead to yet more delays. Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I shall go to the Western Union office this afternoon, assuming that I can organise transport, as I mentioned in my previous mail snow is causing great disruption here in North Wales and my vehicle is currently stuck on the A683. Perhaps I shall phone Blodwyn and see if one of her taxis is availble.
I will contact you as soon as I have managed to pay the money, meanwhile please try to stay sober.
Ethel Trellis (Mrs.)
