Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Ursula Wood

Letter No.: 
[About 1st October 1940]

My Dear

I loved having your letter & the poem - I have read them through several times. Hence the delay in answering.
The Sestet is fine - I am not too sure about the 8tet
“Quite believed” & “and not obscure” seem a little stiff.
Do write to Rosemary1 about internees in Canada - you have already given me your father’s address - & I am waiting to write to him till the rather slack people I have written to give me the names. Shall I also write to Rosemary.
Take care of yourself my dear & try to keep happy.


1. Ursula Wood's sister, Rosemary Lock.
