Feb 19 [1935]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Mrs Western

I enclose herewith 15 copies of our letter to the Press - All you have to do is to fill in the name of the Paper & send a covering letter saying you write at my request asking them to insert it - 1
Do not send one to the Daily Telegraph as I shall do that myself on Thursday so that if possible it shall get into the Saturday issue - I also enclose my rough copy in which I have made a few alterations & this will do for you to send to the printer when we bring out our leaflet
Perhaps you had better first show the letter to Mrs Hubback for her approval before you finally send it.2
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams

P.S. If you want any more copies would you have them typed & sent me for my signature.
