What matters z dat Mr Patrick has found his way into d board of the Smiths limited and with each passing day, they ar getting stronger and trying to edge us out. Do u knw wat dat means if dey succeed? We would have lost everytin, this family entire fortune is tied up in Smiths limited. He paused
Charles: dad, hw did dis happened.
in a very somber voice, dad told me how he made huge capitals investment that threw d company into financial turbulence.
Dad: it got so bad dat i had to seek a loan from a bank to run d company, wen d due dates of repayment came, we were in no position to repay the funds. A finance house offered to buy up shares equivalent to d amount of loan taken and to pay off d bank. I refused initially, but i had little option, i was later dismayed to find out that d finance house was owned by Mr Patrick, my long tym foe, who z now on our board. And now the investment i made ar yeilding huge profits. Mr Patrick wants me out.
Charles: was dat wats responsible for ur illness, dad
Dad: of course not. am nt growing younger, son, age z begingin to catch up with me, in couple of months tym, i will be sixty five.
