Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Martin Shaw

Letter No.: 
[late 1914?]

[13, Cheyne Walk,
Chelsea, S.W.]

Dear Martin
I've never written to thank you for all the music you have sent me from time to time - There was "Sorry Time" and the Tallis & others - I'm glad someone is keeping the music going during these times.
I wonder what is happening to you.  I am still in England - whether we are ever going to be used I don't know.  Write & let me have news of you some time as my musical activities now consist of a fife-&-drum band & an "ambulance" choral society.
I hear that Geoffrey is trying to spur the Y.M.C.A. up to musical activity.
My wife is back in London now & wd be very glad if you cared to come in to tea one afternoon.
