I donít think this is the person you are looking for.  I think this was possibly a business trip given the address was a hotel

Yes...it does rather throw up more questions than it answers. But...the only reference to Desmond's dad was Jervis...J Salter. I had previously thought that this was his mothers dad who he was referring to because he didnt know his own...
