Dorking.

Dear John,

Is there an organ in the Town Hall at Gloucester? And if so has it got some very loud and raucous reeds?
There are 4 bars of ‘Job’ which ought to be organ solo, but I have not yet found an organ loud enough or unpleasant enough to do them justice.1
Our love to Alice
   Yrs

1. VW was to conduct Job at the Three Choirs Festival.
