BRACERS Record Detail

Davies tells BR that he met with Meynell for two or three hours the previous night, as well as telephoning Lloyd.
"Meynell read all our evidence and said he had not a word of criticism of what we had done. He had told Dora he would see Maw. He said he would write to you. He seemed to think the crux was money, and that what D. really wants is an assurance that in all events she would have £400 a year from you."
He informs BR that copies of all affidavits were sent to Maw the previous night and the originals were filed 13 June.
Davies tells BR that he "... thought it necessary at once to explode the matter of Barry's return, because it would have been impossible to successfully watch and find him", enclosing his correspondence with Maw over the issue (not present). He writes that he sent detective Isles again, who informed him that aside from Europa arriving Thursday, the S.S. Hamburg of the Hamburg American Line at Southhampton and the S.S. President Roosevelt at Plymouth arrived, and that he is still inclined to believe Barry did arrive the previous week, and Dora has been misleading Maw.
Davies notes what BR said about Ben Glue "... and will be considering how best to pump him through Helm, who seems to be trustworthy."
