Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to John Buckland

Letter No.: 
[Oct 1935]

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

Dear Mr Buckland
Thankyou very much for your letter - You don't tell me anything about yourself - how you are getting on with your musical studies. I see you have changed your address - does this mean a change of work?
I have just received a book by Van Dieren1 - which I have only had time to glance at - I have only noticed that his quotation "Music is a rum go" which he attributes to Heseltine was really said by Turner to Ruskin years ago & should be "Paintings a rum go"
Yours very sincerely
R Vaughan Williams

1. Bernard Van Dieren, the composer
