Re Russell children.
Davies tells Maw that due to his letter of 29 June, and phone message of 6 July, "... I agree that it is now possible and desirable for us to exchange ideas on the footing that Lord and Lady Russell now can and wish to reach a concordat as to the future of John and Kate. This would be designed on the agreed basis that in no event is any order of the divorce court relating to custody in general or in particular ever to be sought at any time in connection with or consequential on Lady Russell's petition for divorce."
"As part of this concordat as a whole, all parties would concur at once in taking steps of the withdrawal of the summonses in the Chancery actions and for the removal of all evidence from the file."
Davies writes that if no decree is made the separation deed would stand, but as part of the concordat "... now suggested that in the equal rights provision of the deed should be supplemented by the proposed recognition of Mr. Lloyd and Mr. Meynell as umpire and by their being left free to administer the settlements as the only two trustees."
