BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
Davies encloses a letter he received from Maw 17 July (document .133767). He tells BR that he wished BR to read it, and approve Davies' reply to the letter, however BR was out and the letter was urgent to respond to. He points out to BR that he did not answer the first paragraph of Maw's letter. "The answer might have been that it is quality indeed that matters above all, but that you could only equalise it by sinking to the levels which are beyond plumb." He refrained from giving this answer to Maw.
"On point 1 I have committed you to reading the evidence of Dora's volunteers (not her own) about the staff of the school, but have refrained from any promise to express an opinion upon it.... Points 2 to 5 I regard, rightly I hope, as all determined in a way satisfactory to you." Re Beacon Hill School.
Davies tells BR, "If I had spoken to you, I should have conveyed a request from Maw for you to use your good offices with the hotel not to give trouble about their evidence on the petition. I gathered from Maw that the evidence might have to be given on Saturday next!"
