BRACERS Record Detail

Dora tells BR, "... I do notice in John and Kate especially since this summer a tendency to want to include me in things. It is the first time I have not been there in the background of their lives almost since they were born."
"Peter had, living in my home, what I renounced. But I can assure you she would not have been conceded it by me if I had seen to what use she would put it later. I must write strongly about this, because since you love Peter and are more indifferent to me than I am to you, you cannot judge the thing objectively."
"Peter's relation to the children was acquired by my sharing everything I had with her. She has replied by getting comfort and leisure and security for herself by taking John and Kate's home away, and my home also, for which and in which I had worked twelve years, robbing me of the last years of my youth, since I have to spend them now in working three times as hard and facing anxiety and grief and insecurity."
"What I want is some agreement that expresses our mutual rights in the children and does not leave me dependent only on your good will. You may feel that has not changed and will not change; I feel that already your attitude has changed and will change more."
"... I shall never forget how I leaned on a wall in Majorca under the almond trees and cried when I read your letter offering me £200 a year and liberty to go away from home while Peter came into it."
