Tylor confirms his cable to BR of 6 May (document .101094a, record 116141), and the receipt of BR's cable of 9 May (document .101094b, record 116159).

Tylor writes, "I entirely agree with you that the question of maintenance and the children's holidays ought to be treated as distinct questions, but I am afraid that Dora will not agree to the children going to America for their holidays, unless some concession is made to her with regard to her allowance."

Tylor discusses the petition made in 1937 to reduce Dora's maintenance due to BR's decreased income, noting that they could not get Maw's agreement.

"The present position is that Maw feels that it is just possible that your financial position has so improved, or will so improve, when you take up your new post, as to justify an increased rate of maintenance or at any rate justify the payment of the arrears. It is for this reason that he has asked me for particulars of your earnings since your arrival in America and also for information as to what your salary will be in the future."

Tylor tells BR that BR will have to pay for the children's trip and meet them in New York, and requests the departure and return dates.
