Document is Louis Tylor's report of investigation.
Tylor opens his report with his visit to Petersfield and his request for Tom Helms to meet him there. "Tom Helm met me at the station with his car. He told me at once that he had heard from Mrs. Ainger, the proprietress of Hooks Way Inn, that Mr. Griffin Barry was staying with her. I questioned Mr. Helm closely on various points arising out of his statement dated the 15th of June and the two letters which he had written us, and he confirmed all the statements which he had made."
Tylor mentioned that he decided to interview the Southdown Bus Company's superintendent. Following, he accepted Mr. Helm's invitation to his house and interviewed Mrs. Helm.
Tylor decided to go to Hooks Way, hoping to see Dora and Griffin. "When we arrived Mrs. Ainger hinted that Griffin Barry would be back very shortly and that he had been to London. Shortly after 10 o'clock a man about 45, smartly dressed with a trilby hat and carrying a bag came up the road from Harting, and it was quite plain to me that he was Griffin Barry, and several of the people around said to me that he was Griffin Barry."
