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

Dear Frank

The total charge for copying parts of T.P. & Dona Nobis1 was 39-7-6
I take 10% off because they charged a little extra for deciphering my M.S.
So my bill is 35-7-6
Yrs sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams

P.S.  I thought Phyllis 4tet very good.2
