Westcott Road,

Dearest Harriet

I trust you entirely - please do what you like with the pfte  part. - Now about the end - As I said in a former letter - the quotation from Arnold is a mistake for public performance.1 But thinking it over I cannot substitute anything - so please omit it & go straight from the end of the cadenza to the final bars.  Good luck to you.
