Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Ralph Wedgwood

Letter No.: 
VWL190
[1st February 1905]

Dear Randolph

I am so touched at your writing - & glad to have such dear words from you - I was so hard & matter of fact at York I felt very unhappy afterwards but it wasn't that I was not feeling things.  I can say so little & can never say what you are to us - & whatever the circumstances it is so lovely to see you. 
I had been meaning to write but waited to see if any more notices would come in - Would you kindly keep these 2 for us - one is amusing - to be no less interesting than Chakta is indeed praise.1
Ralph had tea on Sunday with Miss Block & Steele.  They are trembling lest the house sd not be all yr mother likes.
Come soon dear Randolph.
Yr affectionate

Adeline
