[1894?]

Dear Randolph

This is all the paper I can find.  I hear that Sandwich is a beautiful place - there of course remains the Sors Tertia1  i.e. Neither Normandy nor Romney Marsh but somewhere about half way up England - say the Norfolk or Lincolnshire coast (both I think quite flat - it will make me positively ill to see anything more than 100 feet high - write and give an opinion.2
R. Vaughan Williams


1. Possibly VW had in mind the saying written on the schoolroom wall at Winchester College: ‘Aut disce, aut discede, manet sors tertia caedi’.
2. Perhaps the question was one of possible locations for a reading party, such as that which took place at Seatoller in 1895.
