Dear Miss Watkins1,

Thank you very much for your kind letter, and for the precious relic of Brahms2 which you have given me.
The pleasure of working together at that great music grows with me more and more every year and I feel at last I am beginning to understand some of it.
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams
