The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

My Dear Dean
I've had several telephone conversations with the O.U. Press. Apparently they told your agents last week that the only copies of the wind parts were in use & not available - They are however trying to get the Trumpet & Drum parts from the B.B.C. (who want them Thursday) & copy before that day - I hope they will succeed.1
Yrs sincerely
R Vaughan Williams
