1st October 1952

The White Gates,
Dorking,
Surrey.

Dear Bessy

Thank you for your letter and the notice of the Röntgen concert.1
Humphrey Searle is one of the “wrong note” young men, whose music I do not understand, but he is well thought of by many people.
About tickets for the 11th. I asked Miss Cullen2 and I fear she has absolutely nothing left. I am so sorry about this.
Yrs

Ralph

Mrs Trevelyan,
The Shiffolds,
Holmbury St. Mary
Dorking


1. A concert to be given by the Röntgen Quartet, founded in 1940 by Joachim Röntgen, whose father Julius was a relative of Elizabeth Trevelyan.
2. Margery Cullen, secretary of the Leith Hill Music Festival.
