Dear Müller-Hartmann

I enclose a letter from Miss May Harrison.1 Would you like me to go further about it? She is herself a first-rate player. I do not know her sister's playing but I suppose that she would not play with anyone unworthy.
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams

Enc.


1.  The violinist and sister of Beatrice, the cellist, who gave the first radio performance of Elgar's Cello Concerto, and Margaret, pianist and least well know of the three. It is clearly Margaret who is referred to in the latter part of the letter, since VW would be well aware of Beatrice's high reputation.
