Scope and content

2, Cheyne Gardens, S.W. - Withers has gone to see Philipson today [regarding the legacy left to Bob and George in the will of Florence Cacciola Trevelyan]. Received a letter from Sir George, enclosing some old letters, too late to show Withers before he left; they were sent to George not Bob only as he is in London so nearer the lawyers. Will send on Sir George's letter soon; Withers and Crompton [Llewelyn Davies] will let Bob know the 'contents of the enclosures'. Saw Crompton this afternoon; he has the papers, and 'has the whole affair in train'; will be in touch once the significance of the will of Mrs Cacciola's mother, Mrs [Catherine] Trevelyan, is understood.

Regarding Welcombe, George encloses a statement [no longer present] drawn up by Crompton, which Bob can keep. 'Re the last sentence in the letter, [George] told Crompton to get a copy made at Somerset House' so that Caroline need not be disturbed again. Bob can discuss this with Crompton when he is next in town.
