Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Major Percy S.G. O'Donnell

Letter No.: 
March 24 [1940]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear Major O’Donnell,

I find it very difficult to think of anything new to say about the marching tunes, but I could say something about the Running Set1 and the Medley. I wonder if it would be possible for me to say a few words before each of the items or would this be trespassing on the province of the Announcer? Anyway, of course, my remarks would not exceed the number of minutes allowed me.
Yours sincerely,

R. Vaughan Williams
