Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Harriet Cohen

Letter No.: 
[15 November 1932]

College Inn
Bryn Mawr

Dearest Harriet

I loved getting your telegram.
Alas! Alas!  I’ve been engaged for weeks for a dull dinner party here on the 18th - Now look here - I am coming to N.Y. for the weekend on Nov 25 or 26 - Can’t we meet then - & don’t give a tea party for me but just let me come to see you alone.  My only other day in N.Y. is that awful lecture on the 22nd & I’ve got to dine with the society before - so there it is.1
Love from
