Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Gerald Finzi

Letter No.: 
VWL1657
[26th April 1942]

Forgive wartime paper
very confidential

I think you know Ralph Hawkes  - He and young Stanley Bate have got across each other in America & Stanley thinks he is being persecuted & unfairly treated.
I want to get to the bottom of this if I can & if there is anything try to put it right. Perhaps if you can advise we could meet one day soon. 
My love to Joyce
Yrs
