Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Victor Sheppard

Letter No.: 
October 29 [1947]

The White Gates

Dear Mr. Sheppard
Many thanks for your kind letter. My husband asks me to write for him to say how much he appreciates your offer to send us a parcel - But you must not think of us as starving even from your prosperous land1 - If your parcel contains dried fruit - honey or jam he will enjoy these very much for he loves sweet things - he is well and at this moment hard at work correcting band parts.
Yours sincerely
Adeline Vaughan Williams

1 Victor Sheppard was in South Africa, and sent many parcels in the following months, while Britain was still under post-war food rationing. See VWL4360 and other letters to the Sheppards.
