Letter No.: 
VWL2199
28th February, 1951.

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey.

Dearest Betty

I listened in on February 21st.  Your work came as a great relief.  It had vitality and purpose.  I won’t say more after just a first hearing without seeing the score.  You are getting performed at last, I am so glad.  I must try and hear them.1
Yes come down one day in March, though I am rather full that month, but still as long as you do not choose March 13th, 14th, 27th or 28th I am sure we can manage something.
Love

Uncle Ralph

Mrs. le Fanu,
