The White Gates,
Dorking, SURREY.

Dear Page

I shall be delighted for you to play my “Fantasia”.  I only wish I could hear you.
I think I prefer you to do the two-pianoforte version of the “Concerto” which has a lot in it which is necessarily not in the one pianoforte version.
I have succumbed to the wiles of Mrs. Page and have agreed to give her a sitting, as doubtless she has already told you.1
R. Vaughan Williams

Frederick Page, Esq.,

1. Evelyn Page was an artist and portrait painter.
