Nov 20th [1938]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Mr Newman

Many thanks for your kind answer to my letter

To show that I am not worse than my word I am writing direct to Adrian Boult urging more Bloch1 at the B.B.C. – I don’t suppose it will have any effect – as know no one seems to know who really settles policy at the B.B.C.

Yrs sincerely

R Vaughan Williams

P.S. of course this requires no answer


1. Ernest Bloch.
