Notes, topics or text 

Tylor informs Edith that her and BR's wills, along with the draft settlement for the grandchildren, are nearly complete, save for two subject points.

The first regards the wish that Edith and BR wished to reduce Ruby Griffiths' legacy to £50 and include a legacy for Margaret Edwards. However, Tylor did not take note of Edwards' address, and requests the information.

The second regards Edith's executors, which in her existing will are Miss Louise Watson and Miss Isabel H. Benham, and Tylor's partner Charles Dover and himself are the appointed English trustees. "Under the new arrangements whereby Lord Russell will receive a life interest in the whole of your estate and the trustees are to be empowered to pay capital to him if the need arises, I think the whole of the residuary estate should be held by the English trustees who will be more accessible to Lord Russell and probably more familiar with Lord Russell's finances." Tylor offers two ways of arranging this, and asks Edith for her view on the issue.

Edith's mother has now died, and Edith has revoked her legacy to Bryn Mawr.
