Dorking.

Dear Herbert

My chief feeling is one of great pride that I can call myself a member of the same body as yourself - only in your case it is you who honour any order of which you become a member.1
Of course this is not to be answered - you will be receiving thousands of letters.
Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams
