Letter No.: 
VWL4954
Feb 21 [1947]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates, 
Westcott Road, 
Dorking

Dear Dr McKie
I don't think I can do a Justorum1 - I can't do "pieces d'occasion" - Would the enclosed be any use (I admit that is was a "piece d'occasion" (for George R.V.2))
Yrs sincerely
R Vaughan Williams


1. McKie had asked if VW would write an anthem for dedication of the Battle of Britain chapel at Westminster Abbey. VW eventually agreed; see further in VWL4955-VWL4959.
2. i.e. King George V. The enclosure is not present.
