Letter No.: 
VWL2944
26th January, 1949.

The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Mr. Hamber,

Thank you for your letter.  It is wonderful of you to be able to hear anything at all in the Albert Hall.  I hardly ever go myself because I find it so difficult to hear anything there.
I am sorry we did not meet at the R.C.M. that evening.  Perhaps another time we shall be able to make contact.1
I did not hear Mr. Chagrin’s piece, but I will look out for it if it is done again.2
Yours sincerely,

R. Vaughan Williams
(R. Vaughan Williams).

Peter Hamber, Esq.,
7, Radnor Road, Harrow

2.  Francis Chagrin, Romanian-born composer and administrator.  The work Hamber had heard may have been his piano concerto of 1948.
