Prose notes from a telephone conversation with Francis Meynell.
Davies notes that he had informed Meynell and Lloyd of everything they needed to know, and that he had advised BR that he was right not to meet Meynell as no bargaining was possible. Meynell threatened to oppose the Chancery proceedings, as he disagreed with Davies' attitude.
"I then tried to make it clear to Mr. Meynell that, whereas I had said that Lord Russell would be willing to receive any communication through me but no bargaining was possible, it was now clear from Mr. Meynell's threat that his object was to put pressure on Lord Russell to negotiate a settlement, and that Lord Russell's decision not to meet must now be final, and I said that Mr. Meynell and Mr. Lloyd must take what course they thought fit."
