November 26th, 1931.

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Sir,
I am conducting a concert for the Dorking Music Club at Dorking Halls on Dec. 4, and I wish to include the following items which I believe are copyright:

Wagner                        Meistersinger overture
Brahms                        Akademische Overture
Elgar                            Pomp & Circumstance No.2 in A minor
Milford                        2 pieces from "A Prophet in the land" (O.U.P.) 
Mullinar                      Where go the boats
Head                            "Money O"
Somervell                    The Street resounds
Vaughan Williams      The Watermill

If any of these are under your control, I should be glad to know, before deciding to include them, what fee is payable.

Yours faithfully,
(sgd) R. Vaughan Williams
