13th October, 1949.

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey.

Dear Mr. Dickinson,
I was much touched by your Choir boys' present. Not only will the score be a most interesting study, as it must be nearly contemporary, I should think; but it has a value as a token of affection through our common interest in music.
Yours sincerely,
R Vaughan Williams

(R. Vaughan Williams)

1.  Dickinson was choirmaster of St Jude's Parish Church in Newcastle; the choir had sent VW a gift of an early score of a Haydn Mass for his birthday in 1949.
