BRACERS Record Detail

Davies met with Meynell that morning and they talked for over an hour. Meynell is "... clever and understanding. He is anxious to perform his function of reducing friction. I said that the object should be not to provide machinery for his mediation in communications between you and Dora but rather to prevent such communications."
Davies informs BR that Meynell understands that Dora wished to interpret the deed as giving her a right to buy clothes for the children without having to pay for them, and understands the importance to BR that the trust funds not be used for clothing, "... but it was evident that he wished to be trusted with the discretion in dealing with the trust fund, and indeed as trustee he could not be placed under any binding specific agreement as to the discharge of his duties."
Davies has arranged a meeting with Maw for that Thursday, and BR's barograph [a recording barometer] was delivered to his office. He asks if BR will take it away.
