Dear Vally, Nora & Biddy

How good of you to say you will play. I shall be in London for next week (Mon 25th Sun 31st) - I suppose we cd not try it through then?1
I am sending the parts up tomorrow - I ought to explain that the pfte solo part is only an approximation - it has to be “translated” into piano music by the player.
