According to the New York Herald, 'as to the amount of money the public lost in the companies with which Mr. Whitaker Wright was associated estimates vary. It is put down in conservative quarters at seven and a half millions sterling. The flotations for which he was responsible come to a much larger figure. In all there were forty-one companies, with an aggregate capital of £22,355,000' ('Whitaker Wright Trial Is Assured,' New York Herald (European edition), 11 March 1903, p. 1).
