Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Victor Sheppard

Letter No.: 
December 6 [1947]

The White Gates

Dear Mr Sheppard
Your wonderful parcel arrived yesterday1 - most skilfully packed & in perfect condition - You could not have chosen every item more welcome - we send you our grateful thanks.
I am glad that the music outlook in Cape Town is good. What share do you take in all this? I must have expressed myself badly if you thought I was under the impression you were S. African for that thought never occurred to me.
I must apologise that I could not read your Xtian name - all the rest so clear. I hope you are satisfied with life in Cape Town -
All good wishes from us & again many thanks
Yours sincerely
Adeline Vaughan Williams
