Davies tells Maw, "The impression you left on me was that Lady Russell, having no other proposal to make, assented by you as her spokesman to the children going to Dartington unless Bedales should be found preferable. That impression was confirmed by your letter to me of the 27th January, in which you said that Lady Russell would consent to the children going to Dartington for eighteen months on the footing set out in that letter."
"I am unable, after reading your letter of the 27th January and Lady Russell's letter of the 2nd of March, to see that the decision for Dartington in September next has been taken in breach of the equal rights clause or of any undertaking given by Lord Russell. It is outrageous for Lady Russell to attempt to convey that the equal rights clause has been broken down by reason of Lord Russell not reasonably agreeing with her as to the schooling of the children; or that she has been overborne by any exercise, or threat of exercise, of the father's ultimate legal right to their custody."
