Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Harold Haig-Brown

Letter No.: 

13 Cheyne Walk

Dear Haig Brown1
Many thanks for the poem. But I have made a vow (which I hope to be able to keep) never to write another hymn tune - I've done edited two complete books2 - which I think is enough for one man
Yours sincerely
R Vaughan Williams

1. The recipient is probably Harold Haig-Brown, a contemporary of VW's at Charterhouse School, where his father was Headmaster.
2. The English Hymnal (1906) and, with Martin Shaw, Songs of Praise (1925).
