Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Mr Scott

Letter No.: 

Dear Mr Scott1
You must understand that I know nothing about Folk-dance, but I daresay I cd do some patter between the dances. Are the RCM2 team considered good enough to dance by their teacher?
yours sincerely
R Vaughan Williams

1. Possibly Charles Kennedy Scott, who gave performances in collaboration with the English Folk Dance Society in the 1930s.
2. Royal College of Music.

General notes: 

Presumably this was a response to an invitation to speak at a folk-dance event; VW was in fact the President of the English Folk Dance and Song Society from 1932.
