Davies encloses the shorthand notes from the proceedings of 22 November, asking BR to return them (not present).
"Please note what Mr. Bayford said at the bottom of page 16 about custody of the children, which makes it once more and finally clear that the question of custody is not to be entertained by the divorce court but remains with the Chancery court where all the facts at any time can be brought out." Regarding alimony Davies writes, "... I believe that an application may be made at any time after the Decree Nisi, and that an interim order for not more than three months may be made, but a final order is not usually drawn up formally and is never made operative before the Decree Absolute."
"As regards any action now by the King's Proctor, this is less likely after he has taken part in the proceedings and heard the Judge's statement that, so far as one could judge, Dora has set out a full history of the matrimonial life with one reservation, which made no difference, and that the Judge having considered the facts had no hesitation whatever in saying that the court ought to exercise its discretion."
