Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to John Buckland

Letter No.: 
Sunday [19 Sep 1937]

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

Dear Buckland
I was very glad to get your letter - I have been a long time answering it - but Gloucester1 & various things intervened. I am interested in your views of the Lakes - they have always depressed me - I wd much rather go to the Wiltshire downs - but then I don't like mountains. I expect it is my shallow mind which is afraid of being stirred to the depths & I am too old to climb up hills now!
I wonder how you found Scotland - even less lovely than the lakes is my impressions!
I expect we shall meet at RCM2 next week - & I shall like very much to look at your work
R Vaughan Williams
