Letter from Olin Downes Ralph Vaughan Williams

Letter No.: 
VWL3905
August 26, 1953

Dear Mr. Vaughan Williams

I would like with this letter to introduce to you a man and musician, whose artistic principles and effective work in the dissemination of his art really remove any necessity of a word of introduction about him at all.  I believe I told you in a recent letter1 something of Mr. Pfohl's work and personality.  Well I stop here, merely saying that it is with great pleasure that I send this little note to you through Mr. Pfohl.

Sincerely,

Mr. Ralph Vaughan Williams
The White Gate2,
Dorking, Surrey,
England.
