Letter No.: 
November 24th 1953

From R. Vaughan Williams,
10, Hanover Terrace,
Regents Park,
London, N.W.1.

Dear Mrs. Hooper,

                                                                            ST JOHN PASSION

St. Martin's Church Dorking. Saturday February 27th. Rehearsal 2.30 Concert 7pm.
NB. This is a private concert and nothing to do with the Festival. Can you sing for us again this year? I fear that in spite of fees having gone up we cannot offer more than five guineas.
Yours sincerely,

R Vaughan Williams

I do hope you can come    RVW
