Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Victor Hely-Hutchinson (BBC)

Letter No.: 
May 28 [1946]

The White Gates,

Dear Hely Hutchinson

The enclosed is the result of an interview with Mr George Brown at the Ministry of Labour - would you sign?1
He says that some distinguished names will help.  I ought to add however that Dyson & Marchant though not disapproving want to go to work in their own way2
Please return to me

R Vaughan Williams

1.  Probably a reference to the gathering of signatures in support for the release of interned alien musicians.  No enclosure exists with the letter.
2.  Sir George Dyson, Director of the Royal College of Music; Sir Stanley Marchant, Principal of the Royal Academy of Music.
