Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Arnold van Wyk

Letter No.: 
21st. March, 1951.

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey,

Dear Arnold
Here is a photograph. If it will help you once more with your fine music it will add to my pleasure in sending it, so do put your shoulder to the wheel.
I am glad to see that a Symphony by you is being done at a London English concert soon.1
I always find that I want to compose most when I am most busy. When I try to clear things off so as to leave a free time I usually can think of nothing.
(R. Vaughan Williams).

Mr. Arnold Van Wyk,
9, Serpentine Road,
Cape Town, S. Africa.

1. See VWL5110.
