Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Alan Frank (OUP)

Letter No.: 
VWL4155
17th October, 1951.

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey.

Dear Frank
I will have a talk with Mrs. Wood about P.K.1 and see what she thinks about it. I do not want to write anything new, having plenty to do in that way already, as you know to your cost.
As regards Harvard Glee Club, I do not think I ever said that you had promised to publish everything I wrote, which is certainly not true. What I did say, or anyway meant to say, was that I had an informal agreement with you to offer you anything I wrote before I offered it to any other publisher. That, of course, does not imply any necessity on your part to accept it!
You asked the other day for Mrs. Hornstein's address. It is:
Craigelly,
Ladyegate Road,
Dorking.

Yrs R Vaughan Williams

(R. Vaughan Williams).

Alan Frank, Esq.,
