June 1 [1939]

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

Dear Mr Murrill1

Please forgive my not writing before to thank you for your concert.
I was impressed with the string quartet which seemed to me to be full of invention and imagination without extravagance. I also enjoyed the work for clarinet and pfte (which I had heard before). The other works did not appeal to me so much.
This, of course, requires no answer.
Yours sincerely

R Vaughan Williams
