Letter No.:

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

Dear Isaacs

I have been talking to Muir1 on the phone and he urges me to send you the prelude to 49th || l 2   for Jan 30th if you still want it.  It plays about 2½ minutes. He is sending me the band parts and as soon as I have checked them I will send them to you with the score
Probably you will want some extra string parts - I suppose you will get those done.3
Yrs sincerely

R Vaughan Williams
