Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Ralph Wedgwood

Letter No.: 
VWL216
November 26 [1906]

Dear Randolph

If I'd known you were coming back so soon I'd have sent a triumphal arch to Newcastle station in addition to all the others which doubtless greeted you. Give my love to Iris & say that I want to see that beautiful mantilla in real life. It did me good to see your face without a line in it.
Leeds is off probably - Stanford doesn't like the work1 in its present form  - on the whole I am glad because it will give me time to put it right away and make it really good.
Yrs affectionately

Ralph Vaughan Williams


1.  Possibly the early draft of A Sea Symphony or, more probably, Toward the Unknown Region.
