Thank you all very, very much. You almost make me feel young again - which I wanted badly when I got on my 49 bus this morning - though I am almost terrified by those 32 staves - but perhaps they will make me believe I am only 32.1 Will you all come & listen when I have put some notes on them? - please do.
Yours always

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Presumably 32-stave paper, ruled by all the recipients, a birthday present perhaps for his 50th birthday - implied by the references to feeling younger etc.?
