    Transcription of the handwritten note: "A copy of the HO (Home Office) letter marked 4B is attached and was sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions. The complainant – Alfred Solomon – is a dangerous & violent person and is the last person on this world to want protection. On the 14th February 1921 he was charged with welshing (11 cases) at Windsor & the matter was dismissed … and pay £10 damages & £2.50 costs. On the 27.4.21 he was acquitted at the CCC for shooting & wounding a man named Kimber with who he had quarrelled, the defence being that it was an accident. On the 6.7.1923 he was again acquitted at the CCC for … & occasioning bodily harm, accused with others. On 18th Nov 1924 at the CCC he was sentenced to 3 years PS for manslaughter. On this occasion he was charged with murdering a CRO man named Hendon @ Blitz and further charged with the attempted murder of another person. Such is a part of his history and I do not think we should take any notice of his complaint."
