Fan- shawe had no surviving relatives but lie had an adopted a girl ir the early twenties who is a wealthy'woman and-spends a good deal of her time In Europe. One of the first questions that was .ask- ed Holmes when the news of the legacy came out was is it that no one connected with Fanshawe has come down to Jamaica to es- tablish your identity or find out your And he replied at Fanshaw's. adopted daughter out to about a year ago and came to the prison4 to see but was not allowed to do so.

As a. proof of the authenticity the Holmes states that the lawyers who are handling the mat- ter In America have sent him. dur- ing the last year money drafts amounting to about dollars at three different times- on account of the- legacy. He states these drafts were sent by registered but that he has not received or been informed their arrival for but he naa received registered letters from the lawyers stating that they hate been' sent and asking he received Efforts are now being made by his friend to trace these registered letters in the Post Office.
