Dear Mrs Western

I am sending your list to Dr Davison.1  I will approach the Secretary of the R.C.M. Union about enclosing leaflets with their annual report -
Perhaps you have already done so but would it be a good plan to send a copy of our leaflet to each of our supporters and telling them they can have as many more as they like & you hope they may help us etc.
Mr. Forty's address is
Gerald Forty2
52 Charlotte Road

and Dr Davison's

Mass - U.S.A.

Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams
