SURREY.

Dear Mrs Thomson

It was so good of you to tell me about the performance on Friday.1  I was very much interested in the ‘Birmingham Post’ criticism.  I do not think myself that the production was so bad as they make out, unless of course owing to a smaller stage they had to modify it a great deal.
It was so nice of Elizabeth to write to me.
What I should really like to see in the way of production is more or less like an Elizabethan stage without scenery, but galleries &c.
Ys sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams

Mrs. Thomson,

Selly Park,
Birmingham.


1. Of Sir John in Love??.
