Notes and questions handwritten by my late sister, Vera Douglas.

Herbert Wright pleaded guilty to the charge of falsifying deeds in regard to ground sold to Rylands (Freddie's ground). He was given a suspended sentence and struck off - remember Rylands took the action against H. Wright when he was employed by Tughan whose members were actually in the court room during the sentencing - Transcript of court evidence etc can be applied for but there is very little hope of getting it as I was told by a Senior Detective because of the people involved. I tried but was unsuccessful.
C. Gilpin negotiated with only one member of the Andrews family - William Andrews. Therefore statement that C. Gilpin negotiated with members of the Andrews family is INCORRECT.
Regarding H. Wright's completed certificate addressed to Rylands stating that the company owned the property at Smithfield was falsified by H. Wright as he was very much aware at that time. This explains why Rylands sued H. Wright of Tughan & Co.
Who ordered Official Solicitor to investigate this fraud? Why were the police not asked which would have been the correct procedure?
Who valued shares at 35,000 and why was this money placed in the Northern Ireland Industrial Bank in the names of C. Gilpin and H. Wright? Neither of these men were Freddie's guardians, therefore had no right to accept this figure or place money in an obscure bank and under their names - this was not relayed to any member of the family.
Tughan & Co were very much aware of what happened to Freddie's property at all times as Mr. Burgess was in Tughan's office when W. Andrews was asked to sign forms relating to the sale of Freddie's property.
What were the figures agreed between Tughan & Co and Official Solicitor regarding Rents which Freddie should have received but were supposedly paid to the Official Solicitor - Why??
Why has the family had such difficulty in getting response of the then Official Solicitor and subsequent ones to the amount of money which the Official Solicitor is supposed to be holding on Freddie's behalf?
Why was this 35,000 which Freddie should have received be paid to Andrews & Co after the shares were bought over by C. Gilpin. The Company never owned the Shares which is quite clear on all deeds! H. Wright was aware of all these facts.
Why did Law Society hand over Mrs Wright's complaint regarding H. Wright to the Official Solicitor - on what grounds was this decision taken? Why were family not informed?
Tughan & Co especially Mr. Burgess were perfectly aware of Freddie's mental incapacity at all times!
How could Tughan & Co and Official Solicitor state that H. Wright carried out in a competent manner "all Freddie's affairs" when a complaint had been made to the Law Society about his handling of Freddie's property?

Regarding the statement (page 6) one partner namely Miss McClelland joined the firm about the samed time as H. Wright and assisted H. Wright.
Being dissatisfied with H. Wright's work I tried to contact him by phone, by letters and by recorded delivery but had no success. I did contact Miss McClelland a few times who always told me Mr. Wright was out or was with a client. At no time did he contact me regarding my calls. Obviously McClelland was covering-up for him!
Regarding Tughan's statement that no-one had ever complained about H. Wright - this is entirely untrue as I wrote to the Law Society stating my complaints and got a negative reply from them. Nothing was done by them on my behalf.
Just for the record, my complaints were for the return of my deeds which he was keeping for me, but subsequently he sold the property and I received no money. This was taking place at the same time as Freddie's property was being disposed of as these deeds were also part of the Smithfield properties - and now part of Castle Court.
