Practice and Procedure

Where a letter of complaint was written and adduced as evidence of a recent complaint, it was not necessary that it had been communicated to another. Each case had to be determined on the evidence in issue, but the critical factor was the character of the letter which was to be determined by looking at the form and content of the letter itself.
