Letter from Ursula Vaughan Williams to Michael and Eslyn Kennedy

Letter No.: 
[3rd June 1957]

Thank you for lovely long letter.  Poor John1 – he is in the wars!  We had a lovely concert in Bath, & the west looked radiant.
Now the house is full of Milfords2 & Joy,3& we have his concert tonight & off to Innsbruck on Wednesday morning – all very exciting.4 Ralph is frightfully well, & everything is fine!
Fondest love


Naturally from us both.

1. John Barbirolli
2. The composer Robin Milford and his wife. The R.V.W. Trust held an all-Milford concert, as VW felt his music was unjustly neglected. See R.V.W.: a biography, p.380.
3. Joy Finzi.
4. On the Austrian holiday see R.V.W.: a biography, p.380-381.
