Davies tells BR he received BR's letter of 15 May, along with his enclosed letter from Lloyd of 13 May. "He seems to have preceded the rest of us to Broadmoor, and the evidence of an inmate of that institution will be suitable in our proceedings." Davies tells BR he received an admirable letter from Miss Silcox, which he encloses (see document .133688, record 115689).

Davies is completing instructions to Mr. Uthwatt, and has a meeting with him 17 May at 9.30. "I shall take him by what would be his beard if he had one and say he must combine the utile with the dulce on his holiday and get through the boredom of his game of golf cheerfully with the prospect of spending a pleasant evening with your papers."

Davies tells BR, "My idea is to treat the application not as a simple every day one to slip through easily, but as an S.O.S. on behalf of the children so startling and serious as to impress the judge with the urgent need for special action in view of your jeopardy from abuse of the practice of the courts...."

Davies has telephoned Mrs. Brenan for a statement and asks for the return of the enclosed testimonial (not present) from Moya Davies. "I will consider what encomium I can include of ye all." He wants statements from other friends on BR's list, including the Trevelyans and the William-Ellis pair.
