[13th October 1947]

The White Gates,
Dorking.

My dear Moore

I was delighted & surprized to get your good wishes for my birthday1 - It carries me back to old days when you used to sing “Adelaide” & play Beethoven sonatas.
Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams


1.  VW's 75th birthday on 12th October. Moore sent messages on for VW's 80th and 85th birthdays, the latter being acknowledged in almost exactly similar terms - see VWL3582.
