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

Dear Frank

(1)  Job at Worcester
Atkins refuses to let me have a Saxophone - if he persists I shall cut the section where it occurs (Scene VI  F.S. p. 67 up to letter (Pp)) - so please ask your librarian not to send the parts till this is settled - & then if he persists to paste paper over the cuts to be made.1
(2)  I return the Galop - it seems all right.2
(3)   I return your note about Job with my comment3
Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams
