BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
BR forwards to Tylor letters that seem relevant to Harriet's parentage (not present), stating that there are many more that refer to the matter. However, he feels the thirteen he's included are conclusive. "They also seem to indicate why I thought this pregnancy was regarded by Dora as a mistake and that there would be no more, and why for everyone's future happiness it seemed at the time necessary for me to accept the fictitious parentage and responsibility. When Roddy was born, I could no longer believe either in a mistake or in the need of my acceptance."
BR asks that if Tylor feels that these letters are conclusive, then is there no need for him to find the court documents. He also asks Tylor if he personally would deal with the matter.
There is a handwritten note by Edith attached listing the dates of the letters BR has included.
BR suspects that the court documents are "at the bottom of the bottom box—if they are here at all—and there many boxes." Hunting in them "is a gruelling business."
[Edith's list of relevant letters should be checked against documents in the Russell Archives.]
