I wonder if we could find out what kind of car it was?
It was probably a big car.

Sounds like and interesting fellow........

He was charged for bribery, his son for bank robbery, among other things. The same son was murdered in the west prior to Robert's death. The chauffer was charged for the messenger boy's death.

It took a while, but it appears the car was a Royal Tourist.......
