The Farrow's Bank Crash page 4

Pages: 1 2 3 <4>

Some eighteen months before his death, which occurred at East Hampnett, near Chichester, on April 27th, 1934, Thomas Farrow wrote a letter to a newspaper in which he declared: "I was the largest shareholder in the bank, and lost everything - indeed, more than anybody else - including my freedom. The judge who tried the case directed the jury to treat me as a 'man of irreproachable character.' One of the prosecuting counsel informed my counsel that 'if the jury had given their verdict at the end of his speech on my behalf I would have got off.' Neither I nor any of my family received one penny to which we were not legally and morally entitled. I have official documents to prove that in winding up the bank's affairs I was given a clean sheet in regard to any personal or financial liability."
