Dear Monsieur Fleury

I wish I could have come to your concert but I have a choir which meets every Tuesday just at that time.  I am so sorry - it wd have been a great pleasure to hear you play again - Fancy your reviving that little piece of mine - I quite forgot that it existed.1
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams
