Dear Mr Downes

I am so sorry - But Mr Pfohl only telephoned me 24 hours before leaving for Europe - & I happened to be busy all that day (house moving!!) so we missed - I do hope for better luck next time.  He has sent me his record of my symphony - which I will play through with pleasure as soon as we are settled in.

Yours sincerely
R. Vaughan Williams
