From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Frank,

I have written to Barbirolli and asked him to communicate with you about S. A.1
As regards Dona Nobis I have already had a letter from Frank Merrick about it, & I enclose a copy of my answer to him.2
If you will wait a little I will do your suggested arrangement of the chorus from S. O. L. myself.3
Yours sincerely,

R. Vaughan Williams
