Dear Miss Sharp
It is good of you to be taking all this trouble.  I agree with your letter but as between ourselves I think we ought to share all profits & losses equally.  This seems all rather premature when the thing is'nt1 even written - much less performed.  But it is better to get it all settled.
Yours sincerely
R Vaughan Williams
