The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Noble1

Thank you so much for writing and sending the press notice.
I had hoped to see you in England again this year. We had a very pleasant but such a short meeting last time.
I always tell my friends that I have the distinction of being the only person whom Walter Parratt and yourself entirely failed to teach the organ to.
Yours

R. Vaughan Williams

Dr T Tertius Noble

1. English organist and composer of mainly liturgical music. He was organist of St Thomas's, Fifth Avenue, New York from 1912-1947. He was organist at Ely Cathedral at the time VW was at Cambridge.
