Letter No.:

Feb 9 [1945?]

Dorking.

Dear Martin,
At last have been able to play (?) right through the "Redeemer".  It is a noble work and ought to be done every year where.
I am furious because the BBC are doing it on the same day and hour as my performance of the Matthew Passion at Dorking Church.
My love to Joan.  I do hope she is better.  What lovely words she has found for you.
Yours

R.V.W.
But Adeline is going to listen.
