Dear Gerald

You will be glad to hear that the Butterworth Trust have undertaken to finance the publication of Morris’ Concerto1 on their own, so there will be no necessity for anyone else to subscribe; but the way you and others can help will be by buying lots of copies when the time arrives.
My love to Joyce
