Letter No.: 
VWL334
[April 1911]

13 Cheyne Walk,
S.W.

Dear Dent

Gray1 asks me to write and choose between two dates for taking a rehearsal at Camb: - May 11th wd suit me the best of the two dates he suggests.
I enclose a list (given me by Boisdorf) of the windplayers who played my S.S.2  at Oxford (most of them also at Leeds) - so if they played at Camb: it wd all make for a better performance. I never thanked you for your kind letter about R. Gatty  - he is now in London & is getting a certain amount of musical criticism to do - so I hope he will get into that permanently soon.
Yours very truly

R. Vaughan Williams
