[14th April 1935]

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

Dear Sir

I venture to enclose a few leaflets with regard to a memorial to Gustav Holst.1
Your university2 has taken such interest in his work that perhaps there are some among you who would like to share in perpetuating his memory.
Yours faithfully

R. Vaughan Williams
