Letter No.: 

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear K.

I should like to help you all I can – could we wait till the beginning of December when I shall be up in London for Worcester Fest: rehearsals.
Your programmes sound most attractive – I am sure there are a lot of 1st rate fiddlers about who are not in the ordinary orchestras – especially women.
I mention a few names in case you don’t know them

Violin -  Ruth Pearl, - Palmer,
              May Hope,  Miss Brennaud [Brennard?]
Viola     V. Gotch,  Margaret Ludwig
              Jean Stewart
Cello     Olive Richards,  Betty Moir

- Do come to the Worcester reh: & we can talk then.

Love from

Uncle Ralph
