Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Victor Sheppard

Letter No.: 
September 7 [1948]

The White Gates

Dear Mr Sheppard
Another delightful parcel arrived safely about 10 days ago - Very many thanks from us to you - and to Miss Watts if she had a hand in it - it is very nice to have dried fruits and now we have every ingredient for a birthday & Xmas cake - you are both very kind.
My husband is away at the Worcester Festival - He very seldom leaves home but I hope he will no be disappointed too much in the works for which he is responsible "Job" & his 'Tallis'.
I like to hear of your music and hope to hear that you have found a home -
Yours sincerely
A M Vaughan Williams
