Dear Randolph

I must write a line to tell you how much I enjoyed meeting your Veronica1 - I was continually being reminded of you - which as we never meet now was like a delightful whiff out of the past.  I hope she had a good time at Sheringham.  It was so nice when she came in for tea with us - I heard of the projected dramatic performance with the Wardleworth2 children.
I shall take you at your word and prepare myself for a night at York next time I come up North.
Yours affectionately

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Cicely Veronica Wedgwood, Wedgwood’s daughter born in 1910 and at this time 11 years old. She later became Dame Veronica Wedgwood, the historian.
2. Wardleworth is in Rochdale, Lancashire.
