Letter No.: 
VWL1184
Sunday [28th January 1934]

The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Mr Herbage

Many thanks for your letter and complete programme and I note that you are hoping to engage Miss Silk.1 I should think that the final rehearsal would be the one for her to attend.  If she cared to attend another one also then I should think the strings only one would be the best.  I am sorry that you have not found room for the ‘Running Set’.2
Yours sincerely

R Vaughan Williams
