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

My dear Evelyn,

It was good of you to write and tell me your news, also the amusing press cutting.  Is it true that you brought the wind machine home with you?  Fancy John going off again!. will he have to go a third time in any other capacity???  I hope you visited the Victoria Falls on your way back as John said you were going to.  I am so glad he is better.1
All love from us both,
Yrs
