The document number .133616 is page 1 of the letter, which is continued at document .133620.

Davies writes, "I have received your letter of yesterday's date saying that you would not object to an order to the effect which has been proposed." Davies encloses the latest copy of the letter (not present) for BR.

Davies tells BR, "In order to save the divorce from wreck and serious discredit to you and our firm it is essential that we should remain clear of any imputation of collusion." Maw and Dora have decided to go through with the divorce, as well as a custody order, and he does not "... therefore think it essential that the letter should be written before your position in the divorce proceedings has been defined...." "The immediate point therefore is whether with regard to custody it would be better to do nothing until the position develops in the divorce court...."

Davies encloses two letters he has written to Maw (documents .133621 and .133622), "... with a view of safely ascertaining whether Dora is prepared to allow an order to be made by the Chancery Judge and then to proceed with her divorce."

There is an extra page attached to the letter saying, "I have to write this letter very hurriedly to catch the post. If there are any blunders I will ask Mr. Davies to write you a further letter tomorrow, but I think it should be alright." It is signed by D. Barrs, who also signed the main letter for Davies.
