Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Ralph Wedgwood

September 11 [1906]

Dearest Randolph

Your letter of the 5th came to me this morning at Abingdon - We are on our way to London by river & Ralph’s mother is with us.
It would be lovely to come & see you but this week is not much good & next week we go to Leith Hill to see something of the Great Hervey.1   Later on if you have a clear evening do telegraph to us for the chance of our being free - & of course everything else goes to the winds if you can only have us soon and not later.  I am suffering from a second excitement for my darlin[g] brother is just engaged to Cecilia Cornish - he has known her a fortnight & we all think he could not have done better - But he will have to wait longer than you & is as ill fitted for it - 2
I am glad to hear Felix is in England - you will like to have him better than anyone.  Ralph sends his love.  He has been asked to send his photograph to 2 papers so you see he is getting on.
Yr very affte

A.V.W.
