Dear Foss

Do come over one day - it would be nice to have a talk. Would Mrs Foss come down too - that wd be a great pleasure.  I thoroughly enjoyed my days at Denham - & am quite prepared to do another film provided (1) I like the subject (2) I get good money (3) I have a say as to when & how the music should come in - By the way I've had no money for 49th  // l yet - I forget when the 1st wodge of cash is due!1

R. Vaughan Williams
