The American Inheritance

The American Inheritance part twelve

The American Inheritance 12.1.1   

Kirree tells more to Ealee       
and Juan.   

Kirree: A woman who looks like me -   
she approached the secretary   
of the Manx Society      
ayns Cleveland.   
Ealee: Is there a Manx society there?                       
Kirree: Sure. Anyway, it appears this     
woman was sneaking      
She found out a lot about me.   
Juan: Is this to do with the passport?   
Kirree: I think so.   
Inspector Jones thinks             
she found out about the    
farm I’m looking for.   
It was intended that she would come   
here on a false passport,   
impersonating me.   
Ealee: But why?   
Kirree: They don’t know exactly.   
The police are questioning her.   
Maybe some group is    
trying to get a farm    
as a crime base.     
Juan: You must be pleased     
they got her.  
Kirree: Yes, indeed.   
Ealee: Now, what about the     
Records Office?

The American Inheritance 12.1.2   

Although Juan thinks    
Kirree should have a rest,    
they go to the Records Office. 

Official: I’ve got good news for you.   
I’m almost sure I’ve 
found the farm    
your relatives owned.    
Kirree: Wonderful!    
Where is it and what is it called?   
Official: Ballabuggane, in Ballaugh.       
This makes Ealee and Juan laugh.   

Ealee: Ballabuggane?  That’s funny!   
Kirree: The people there now,     
do they own the farm?     
Official: This isn’t part of my job,
but I think they rent it.    
Kirree:  Very good.                    
How can I find out    
who owns the farm legally?    
Official: Maybe that will be difficult.    
Do you want to go on with this?   
Kirree:  Yes, without a doubt.    
Ealee:  Are you absolutely certain?    
It could cost a lot of money.    
Kirree:  My mind’s set on it.    

Kirree thanks the official    
and Ealee, Juan and Kirree    
leave the building.
