Dear Mr Calvocoressi

I am sorry to have troubled you with a telegram - But I have decided to produce my 4tet at a concert here and we want it at once for rehearsal.  If you think of doing it in Paris I will have another copy made for you.1
Meanwhile I am sending you my quintet (a much earlier work).2
Yrs very truly

R. Vaughan Williams
