From: Lady Rebecca Thatcher.
No:36 Old Shrewberry Street,
London England.

 Beloved,i am Lady Rebecca Thatcher, suffering from cancerous ailment..I
 used to be married to Sir Jeremy Thatcher an Englishman who is dead
 and resting peacefully. My husband was into private practice all his life
 before he passed. Our life together as man and wife lasted for three
 decades without offsprings. My husband died after a protracted illness
 in an accident he got from Africa while on humanitarian duties. My
 husband,while he was alive made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the
 less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who can not help
 themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament.I can
 adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from the marriage, which
 never came.
 When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Twenty Million
 Pounds which were derived from his vast estates and investment in
 capital market with his bank here in UK. Presently, this money is still with
 the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live
 due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from.
 Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to
 the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen me,  I have decided
 to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes
 from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans,
 destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children,
 barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.
 I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit
 this money and my husbands relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy
 persons and I do not want my husbands hard earned money to be misused or
 invested into ill perceived ventures. I do not want this money to be
 misused hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid
 of death hence I know where I am going. I do not need any telephone
 communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of
 the presence of my husbands relatives around me. I do not want them to
 know about this development because i want the money used for the Less
  My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please
 assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein.
Hope to hear from
 you soon.

 Sincerely yours,
Dr Rebecca Thatcher.
