Dear Miss Mayhew,
You have not responded to a single email of mine but I hope that there will now be a sea change.
I was, as you know, in the Priory for three weeks and I have now been held up in this wretched hotel for 6 weeks, since the 25th June, as I could no longer afford to stay at the hospital, at a cost of £6,500 a week.
I applied to the trustees for financial help for both the hospital costs and my expensive skin medication but I received the usual standard letter saying that assistance could not be justified. Was such a test applied to my brother when he got an extra £545,000 in dividends over two years, as well as being granted an interest free loan of £1.4m to buy Granimar House, which is still in place? Of course, it was not, as my brother is and has always been in a far better financial position that I have ever been.
The sizeable additional amounts that have been granted to my brother were at the behest of my father and the refusal to grant me assistance was at the behest of John Marriott, acting on instructions from his “master” and fellow Mason, my father.
All I have ever wanted was equity between my brother and I and that equity would enable me to move out of this hotel, move to the mainland and sell my house on the Isle of Wight.
I have of late, been very conciliatory and have suggested many different options to achieve my goal, even to the extent of signing a legal waiver that would prevent me from suing either BLP or Paicolex or even the trust officers of the same or for past misconduct or even the partners at BLP.
But, no one has done a single thing to help me and you, personally, ignored my pleas to take my father’s worsening Alzheimer’s into account, a matter that has caused me a great deal of anguish and financial pain.
Does not my desire to wish to end my life move you at all? Do you possess any humanity or morality whatsoever?
It is not as though it is your money; it belongs to the trust and, as a beneficiary, I should receive my fair allocation, not one designated by my father or John Marriott on a whim.
You are also well aware that I suffer from psoriasis and I have the severe form. I am in constant pain and sleep very little in blood-soaked sheets; I have been sleep deprived for as long as I can remember. My condition is as a result of the immense stress that I have endured for so long.
As if the false allegations made by my own daughter were not enough, if the attempted blackmail by my father was not enough, you and your firms have exacerbated my condition with your apparent desire to increase the pressure put on by my father and my daughter.
Why don’t you just let me be and, being in control of Paicolex, tell them to grant me what I am due so that I can get away from everyone, including yourselves, to enable me to start a new life? I just want to be left alone, in relative solitude, so that I can heal, both bodily and mentally.
I have said that I will even take out a loan with ASC for the purchase of my new home, money that will be repaid when my house on the Isle of Wight is eventually sold but no one, but no one, has even responded to that suggestion.
If you want to give so much money to my brother so that he “drips in gold”, then fine. Just please give me the small amount that I need to enable me to start again.
