Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to G.E. Moore

Letter No.: 
16th April 1952

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey.

Dear George

I have seen advertisements of “Juniper Hall” and hope very much to be able to go to it.1  I believe the Leatherhead Repertory are very good. It ought to be a good subject for a play. I wonder if it would make into an opera - that is chiefly what I go to plays for.
When are you coming down to Leith Hill Place again? I hope soon.2


Professor George Moore, O.M.,
86, Chesterton Road,

1. Winifred Gerin's play Juniper Hall. The Leatherhead Repertory Company first staged the play in 1952, prior to their performance for BBC Television in 1956
2. Moore's friend and VW's cousin, Ralph Wedgwood, was now living at Leith Hill Place.
