Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Veronica Gotch

Letter No.: 
24th May, 1950.

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey.

Dear Veronica

You know that I have such affection and admiration for you and your playing that I hate to have to refuse you anything, but I have already promised to do more things for 1951 than I think I can manage, and the amount of things I have had to refuse would occupy a whole lifetime if I had accepted them.
I am so sorry.

Uncle Ralph

Miss Veronica Gotch
22, Chepstow Road,
