March 6th 1958.

From R. Vaughan Williams,
10, Hanover Terrace,
Regents Park,
London, N.W.1.

Dear John and Evelyn,

We had what I believe to be the finest performance we have ever given at Dorking of the Matthew.  It must have been the result of your dear telegram.1
Our fondest love to you both,
Yrs
