Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Gerald Finzi

Letter No.: 
[20th September 1932]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,


Dear Mr Finzi

I hear this morning that Carr made some silly muddle about her weeks daily ticket & gave up coming to Dork1 - & as I daresay you have heard Hon has gone to Sunnyside.2 I am so sorry you bothered to move.  I meant Carr to have my room.
It was so nice to have news.  We seem to have been away a great many days.  Shall be home on Friday for tea & hope to find you still there.
Bob writes in good spirits.3


R was grateful to you for sending on the O.U.P. stuff
