[1931]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Grace
I haven't written to you for a long time - and never answered your long letter about Prague - which I was so glad to have - I've seen Betty1 since then & I had news of you as well as her account of the concert. Write to me as soon as you feel inclined & let me konw all about yourself - & about the 4tet  - I love having your letters - but there seems very little to tell in reply.
I couldn't face "Pierrot Lunaire"2
I've just given your address to Angela Bull3 to give to a college boy who is going out to Vienna - but I forget his name
Aren't you coming back to England for a holiday soon - let me know
Yrs  RVW


1. Elizabeth Maconchy, a fellow pupil of VW.
2. Schönberg's Pierrot Lunaire.
3. Angela Bull taught at the Royal College of Music.
