[8th June 1935]

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

Dear Gerald

Yrs was one of the best letters I have had. Its an awful responsibility to be chosen to “represent” music - but it wd have been false modesty to set up my opinion against that of the authorities.1
My love to Joyce & many thanks again.
Yrs
