The REW Cottage
Abinger Common
Dorking

Dear Gwen

I am anxiously awaiting your scenario  - otherwise the music will push on by itself which may cause trouble later on.
I've got the Wicksteed book1 - but I'm not going to worry about the left foot & the right foot.
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Joseph Wicksteed, Blake's Vision of the Book of Job (1910). He expounded a view of Blake's symbolism.
