Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Clarice Newbery

Letter No.: 
Aug 15 1943

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear Miss Newbery
I do not know how to thank all your singers for your beautiful gift. - You evidently are not afraid of the formidable amount of music which that music case suggests!
But after all the best present you have given me is your splendid singing & enthusiastic devotion to hard work, which somtimes almost overwhelms me with a sense of my responsibility to you.
Yrs sincerely
R Vaughan Williams
