From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Sir Henry Wood

I listened in with great interest to your performance of my symphony
- It seemed to be an excellent performance as far as I could judge & I don't like the work itself much - but that is another question1
Yours sincerely

R Vaughan Williams


1.  UVW says that VW disliked various symphonies at various times - she suggested the fourth symphony in this case.
