Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Mrs Lock

Letter No.: 
October 25, [1942]

The White Gates, Dorking.

Dear Mrs Lock1
Thank you so much for your very kind letter.  You may feel sure that it is a pleasure to us both to do what we can for Ursula - we are so fond of her.
I have felt very sorry for you being separated from her.  She is with us for the weekend and yesterday your wonderful parcel arrived and she unpacked it & we admired each thing from the "beautiful string" to the safety pins.  You could not have made a more perfect choice.  The butter must be put away for an emergency but we are celebrating Ursula's visit with the sweets.  She is in good heart & looks well and next week she is to have Rosemary with her.
How kind of your to find out Dr. Sternbach.   I like his wife so much - she longs to join her husband, but she has lost hope, and I will not raise her hopes again.
We both send you our grateful thanks for the parcel.
Yours very sincerely
Adeline Vaughan Williams

1.  Ursula's mother.
