Tylor writes, "I hope you are not too disappointed that I did not succeed in obtaining permission for John to stay a year in America. I was so anxious to get permission for the holidays that I did not wish to run any risk of imperiling the whole application by pressing too strongly for the year."
Tylor tells BR he got Sparrow to appear on John and Kate's behalf, and that Dora made an affidavit to counter BR's. "As I explained in my second cable, we only raised the question of the year before the Judge because John, who came up for the hearing, personally expressed a strong wish that we should try for the year."
"With regard to the holiday Fergus Morton ignored all Dora's ridiculous points about the danger of John and Kate drinking cocktails on the Queen Mary and of their living a life of social gaiety and excitement in America. But unfortunately he did pay attention to what she said about the danger of the children not returning. He said he was inclined to make an order for the holidays, but that he would insist upon someone within the jurisdiction giving a personal undertaking that the children would return to England on the 30th September." If the children did not return the person responsible for such would be sent to prison, which could have been Tylor.
