Dear Mr Newman
I take the liberty of sending you the enclosed in case by any chance you would be able and willing to come.
Gundry was a pupil of mine and I am much interest[ed] in his work (His music is not in the least like mine)
Please do not trouble to answer this - I know how busy you are
Yours sincerely
R Vaughan Williams
