Letter from Gerald Finzi to Ursula Wood

Letter No.: 
[November 1949?]


Dearest Ursula

The only parts I play in pageants are
1) the Duke of Wellington on a white charger.
2) William the Conquerer1 seducing a Saxon maid.
3) Shakespeare composing one of his tragedies.
4) Elijah going to Heaven in a chariot of fire.               
This just about covers the tea with which we are delighted.
Well, as to the new rhymes, I'm pretty certain that you can. But “spheres” was just a suggestion. As I've said before I baint no scholard or haven't a rhyming dictionary.2
Love from us all
