Re John Conrad Russell and Katharine Jane Russell by their next friend and their trustees.
In a draft, Davies tells Maw the Chancery writs were issued to protect the children. "You will remember telling me that Lady Russell had decided to petition for divorce and would claim the custody of the children. I said to you at once that Lord Russell would never tolerate such a claim."
Davies addresses Maw's second question, "... what there is in Lady Russell's attitude as now disclosed which makes it necessary to seek protection. The answer is, first, her determination (conveyed in your letter of the 14th inst.) to oppose vigorously any application to the Chancery Court upon the grounds which counsel has advised her...."
Davies questions Maw's advice to Dora.
