Dear Müller Hartmann

Thank you so much for that interesting quotation, which I entirely agree with. I once heard a performance broadcast from Leipzig, where they ought to know. It seemed to me one of the worst I ever heard.1
Please thank Marianne2 very much for so kindly translating it for me.
The Fourth Act of the Opera3 is out, and I shall hope soon to be able to send you a copy.
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams

R. Müller-Hartmann, Esq.
West Dene,
St. Paul's Rd., Dorking.
