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

Dear McKie

Will this do?
Would it be better in [flats]?
I have used the prayer book version & also written “blest” instead of 'blessed' – I hope the archbp will not mind1
Yrs

1. The text in the prayerbook version of the psalms (Coverdale’s translation) is: ‘O taste and see how gracious the Lord is: blessed is the man that trusteth in him’.
