Dorking.

Dear Major O’Donnell1

I will be with you at Maida Vale by 8.00 pm (I know my way very well) on March 27th (Wednesday).
Have you timed the items?  I shd like to know how long a talk I must prepare.  Or possibly on the other hand the programme is too long and some repeats must be cut.
Yrs sincerely

R Vaughan Williams
