Letter No.: 
VWL5137
April 24th 1955

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

Dear Mr Boyce,
Are you any relation to the great Boyce, the eighteenth century English composer?  If so, I will abrogate my usual rule about not sending my autograph to strangers, though I cannot hope to compete with the distinguished musical comedy writers whose names seem chiefly to have fill1 your book.
I have no intention of retiring yet.
Yours sincerely,
R Vaughan Williams
