Dear Howes

If you happen to be passing the RCM1 on Thursday Sept 3d at 2.45 p.m. you will find Roy Douglas playing through a new tune by me to David Willcocks to see if he wd like to do it at Worcester next year - I need hardly say that you will be welcome.
The Press are not invited.

R. Vaughan Williams
