Re John Conrad Russell and Katharine Jane Russell by their next friend and trustees.
Davies thanks Maw for his quick reply to his letter, which was given to Maw by Davies' representative. "You expressed some surprise to my representative when you read the letter which I had written to you, and said that Mr. Griffin Barry was not here, and was not due to arrive yet. My representative then asked you, when is he coming? and you replied that you did not think that you ought to tell us. The impression conveyed by you was that Mr. Barry was expected to arrive in England."
Davies acknowledges that he wrote an unusual kind of letter, but given the circumstances, he did not feel it was unreasonable, reminding Maw that the previous Friday Dora telephoned him asking him to detain BR in London over the following week, which he did until Saturday, 9 June, "... and having heard in the meanwhile that Lady Russell was making arrangements to meet Mr. Barry during that week...."
