Dear Monsieur Fleury1

I do not think I am on the committee of the Chelsea Concerts any longer - at all events I have had no notice of any meeting.
I think some flute music wd be a v. good idea - and I hope the Ctee will arrange it.
I hope we shall have the pleasure of meeting soon.
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams


1. French  flautist; VW probably met him while studying with Ravel in Paris. He was director of the Société Moderne des Instruments à Vent and introduced many English works to Paris.
