Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Diana Awdry

Letter No.: 
[30th September 1934]

Eversleigh Court Hotel

Dear Diana

How wonderful to get two letters from you - I wish you'd been there - it was great fun and I managed splendidly only I had difficulty climbing down the hen-ladder from my perch - and a friendly cellist rejoicing in the name of Nifosi had to give me a helping hand.1
Now my dear there is only one more thing I have to say - you ARE NOT to apologize for writing to me - you ought to know that I love having your letters.
So there!
my very best love

Uncle Ralph
