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

Dear Foss,

                                                              M.B. arrt of “England”1

I must on no account be responsible for doing Gordon Jacob out of a job - so please if he still wishes to do it let things be as they are. I only meant that if he cried off I wd do it myself rather than hand it on to anyone else.
I believe there will soon be a spate of Internee applications so perhaps we ought to call a full ctee meeting.2


R. Vaughan Williams

1. i.e. an arrangement of England, My England (Catalogue of Works 1941/1) for military band.
2. VW had become Chairman of the Home Office Committee to advise on applications for release from interned foreign musicians.
