From R. Vaughan Williams,

Regents Park,
London, N.W.1.

Dear Catharine

(If I may make so bold) - Thank you for remembering my birthday - & for the delightful book of folk-songs - I wish I cd read Czech - Even the names of the instruments escape me. Klarinet I can guess at - but I wonder what Housle is?? - from the context I should judge oboe.1
Please give my love to all yours & to my Clarions
Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Housle: the Czech violin.
