Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Herbert Sumsion

Letter No.: 
[about August 1931]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear John,
I’ll willingly give up the B. Flute & extra perc – I feel a little unhappy about the sax – perhaps if the movt doesn’t come off as cued in we will cut it.1
My love to Alice – I hope we shall meet soon – at Gloucester at all events.2

1. Apparently for the performance of The Lark Ascending, following VWL1147.
2. For the Three Choirs Festival.
