Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Ralph Vaughan Williams

Letter No.: 
Sunday aft [5th September 1937]

Dear one.

I didnt forget my promise - yr address is on the mantel piece.
Boo1 & I spent all the lovely aftern in garden & had tea there.  Today is cooler but lovely too and we've been reading in the garden & now have come indoors for tea as its windy.
Boo went to Nursing home this morning & saw Josiah.2  He was in bed - There is no question of a drive - he told Boo his concussion is well but his heart is not right & he can't manage walking upstairs.  I expect all this has been kept from Jos -   He longs to get home - naturally -
Boo thought him wonderful to look at & I’m sure the visit was a success -
Shall think so much of rehearsal tomorrow - all is well here

1.  Adeline’s sister, Cordelia Curle.
 2.  Josiah - a Wedgwood?
