Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Mrs Lewis Crow

Letter No.: 
Oct 16 [1952?]

The White Gates

Dear Mrs Crow
Thankyou both for your letter - & for remembering my birthday. It is sad never to see your dear & pretty young people brightening Westcott Road now - But I hope they are happy.
As regards Mr Crow's very kind offer of a birthday present - If he could really spare the services of his typist for an hour or two I shd be very grateful if she wd really like to come - I have had 120 telegrams besides many letters!1
Any day next week except Wednesday is free for me
Yrs sincerely
R Vaughan Williams

1. Possibly just after VW's 80th birthday, when he had received many congratulations. The Crows were neighbours of VW.
