Dorking.

Dear Vally

Thankyou very much for the cello part.
I enclose a “chit” in case they challenge you at rehearsal - but don’t use it unless obliged, just walk in.
I am sending a few notices of the R.O.M concert - If you could help to make it known I should be very grateful - I want as many people as possible to hear his music.1
Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams

P.S. The Job rehearsals are Friday Oct 17th at 11.0  Saturday Oct 18th at 4.0 - Both at Royal Academy of Music2 - I can’t promise to go right through it on Saturday.


1. A concert of works by R.O. Morris; see R.V.W.: a biography, p.185.
2. VW stresses 'Academy' presumably because his links were much closer with the Royal College of Music.
