BRACERS Record Detail

BR tells Dora he will address points in her letter to him:
"Peter and I went out with John and Kate almost everyday at Hendaye, because you wouldn't; when we desired a day off, you seemed to resent it. Peter emphatically does not want to take Carn Voel from you or step into a ready made home."
"You must cease to imagine that Peter broke up a happy home. For me, as you know, it was an unbearably unhappy home for years before I knew Peter. The initiative in the final breach was wholly mine. Peter had no such intention."
"Of what needed, in the past, to be done for John and Kate, it appeared to me that you did less than your share. And for my happiness you seemed to be unwilling to do anything. After 4.5 years of great unhappiness, I could bear this no longer. Now you speak of the burdens caused by Harriet and Roderick as if they gave you a claim on me."
BR writes, "You seem to forget that the two acts which, with their attendant circumstances, made our marriage one in name only, were both yours...." [BR refers to Dora's affair with Randall and having Barry's children.]
