Analysis of anonymous letter

We sent the anonymous letter for analysis to a highly qualified and experienced professional, whose CV includes work for local councils, the Police, solicitors and the Courts to name just some of their clients and we now add their report to our site.

Whilst as a courtesy we are protecting their anonymity at this stage, they are willing if called upon to act on our behalf.

Jim Perrin, ‘Guardian’ country diarist, writes an anonymous letter

Jim Perrin has written a particularly noxious ‘anonymous’ letter — one, at least, that we know of — and we have shown it in full transcript with a specimen of his handwriting here.

He was, throughout this letter, twisting facts and dates and trying to put into their landlord’s mind the idea that our late sister’s children were behaving not only anti-socially — with risk to his property — but illegally: doubtless to cause their eviction.

In this remote moorland where there are fewer than a dozen farms the ‘residents’ are mostly known to each other and our sister had lived there with her children for over fifteen years: some of these ‘residents’ were at the party we mention below.

The ‘track’ is on the high moors at the end of a tarmac road which leads only to three other farms before it becomes the length of unsurfaced rough track to the cul-de-sac where our sister’s house is situated. Continue reading

An anonymous letter written by Jim Perrin

It was not long after our sister’s death.  She had died while still young and her children had to adjust to their lives without her constant and loving guidance.  Of course our family and all those who could help gave their full support, and it was during this period of deep mourning that one of Jac’s sons telephoned his ‘Welsh’ aunt.

Her nephew had just opened a letter, sent by their landlord, which he read to her over the ‘phone. In this letter details were given of a ‘letter of complaint’ which they had received and they ended by saying that ‘As explained, no action is to be taken — there has not been a complaint for fifteen years, so I doubt there will be more!’  (Do note the landlord’s emphasis…)

This troubling letter concerned Jac’s children: sent anonymously in July of that year, less than eight weeks after her death, the clear intention of the writer was to do them harm.  Containing vehemently expressed distortions of the truth as well as actual lies it was a work of the most distilled malice.
