Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Edward J. Dent

Letter No.: 
[October 1940]

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

Dear Dent

Thank you very much for your information - As regards N. Draber - we are only allowed to recommend “musicians of eminent distinction who have made outstanding contributions to their art” - & from reports I have received I much doubt if my ctee will feel justified in recommending him - but we will do our best.
I am so sorry you have been ill again.

R. Vaughan Williams
