Jac believed what Jim Perrin told her… she was not aware of the truth — Part 2

Considering all we have discovered about Jim Perrin’s past relationships, it is interesting to note that after our sister died of her cancer he managed to gain the support and loving sympathy of at least six other partners—up to the present—(two within the year of Jac’s death) with the claim that he was himself now dying of the disease: they could hardly have missed this tragic coincidence…

His account of the illness, see: ‘Jim Perrin diagnosed with Terminal Lung Cancer?‘, and his patient suffering and acceptance as he dealt so bravely with his failing health; together with his ‘history’ of past distress—the ‘lack of any real love or understanding’—was to make him the irresistible subject for the ministrations of the sensitive women he seems to have targeted (they were never without property or means) and with whom, successively, he began A New Life.

Jim Perrin moves on again?

How quickly word seems to get out! We received a message only today, 8/10/14, to tell us that Jim Perrin is moving and that, as an excuse, his story is that ‘he is so ill he has got to leave Snowdonia in the next few weeks. He says the climate is very bad for him.’ (And, they continued, ‘He must think we are all idiots.’)

It appears therefore that the information we recently posted about his address in Harlech, Gwynedd, is now out of date, as we have been told that the house has already been sold. (Except: revision.) We have just, 9/10/14, double-checked with the estate agent and they confirmed that a cash offer had been accepted with a completion date of 7/11/14. However the buyers withdrew their offer, and the house is now back on the market. It would seem that, after all, Jim Perrin may not be able to move on quite as quickly as (for the state of his ‘health’) clearly he needed to do: unless, that is, he asks of any most nearly concerned—as he did of our own family in what we believe may be similar circumstances—’the funds to move on with, it is only fair.’…see Overheard at the funeral by Melangell (JP?)

Was Jim Perrin in Ariège for the sake of his health?

We were told some time ago by an impeccable source of the following—and revealing—exchange:

The Guardian newspaper, concerned that one of their regular Country Diarists, Jim Perrin, was now terminally ill, sent someone to Ariège where the author had ‘taken’ a property for the sake of his health! The visitor was to write an obituary for the dying man; this was in expectation of his impending demise from the Terminal Lung Cancer with which, he said, he had been diagnosed. He had informed the whole world of his condition and, in the most minute medical detail, of his Brave Battle. (Writing of it in a book; in newspaper articles and in climbing magazines; appearing at literary festivals and being interviewed on the radio*. So, you see, we are not gratuitously exaggerating….)
