Letter No.: 
VWL2317
20th August, 1947.

The White Gates,
Dorking,
Surrey.

Dear Frank

The new version of the concerto is of course for one piano-forte Cyril Smith1 has the two piano version.  You want the one piano for your slip number 52, (the same chord continues up to the last two bars.)2
Yours sincerely,

R. Vaughan Williams


1.  The original typescript has several notable typing errors in this passage: ‘… for onw piano-forta Ciral Smith …’ . Perhaps it was typed by Ursula Wood.
2.  VW had sent emendations to the score of the Piano Concerto CW 1931/3 - see VWL2304 - but had not had the score of the two-piano version of the work by him to specify exactly how the changes should be entered in that.
