Dear Boult

Can you tell me who has got the parts of L. Symph - Are they at Cheyne Walk - or have you got them?  I have now revised the score and I want to put the corrections into the parts - If you have the parts wd you mind sending me 1 copy each of the string parts (preferably 1st desk) & the wind etc parts to above address.1
I made sure Stainer & Bell had the parts but I find they have not.
Yrs

R Vaughan Williams
