Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Edward J. Dent

Letter No.: 
[Before 6th May 1910]

13 Cheyne Walk

Dear Dent

Many thanks.
Of course the players wd be delighted to be invited - but I didn't see any necessity - they are prepared to go to some pub. I don't see any reason why you should pay for them at the Lion. A middle course might be that they go to a pub suited to their means - and then ask them to add that to their fee.
They come up by the 2.40 train & if they cd be fed1somewhere (pen given out) somewhere they wd be grateful & for any other hospitality - but as I say I don't see any necessity.
Mrs H. Darwin has kindly asked Elwes.2
