Dear Peter
If anything can be done for Harold Spencer (violinist)
16 Moyola Street
Duncairn Gardens
Belfast
I wish it cd be done - But I fear he is past being engaged for concerts. I used to be a fellow student with his brother.1 - I did not know he lived in Belfast. I enclose his letter - but fear nothing can be done.
Thankyou so much for giving me such a royal time - & what splendid performances - I had good journey home2
