The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Mr Foote

I return proofs herewith1 - I fear there are still a lot of mistakes especially I call attention to page 68.  Here my copyist made a quite unnecessary 8va - the engraver followed this literally it looks very bad to my mind.  I called attention to it in the first proof.
May I please have further revises of the following pages
4, 5
3, 9, 10
13
16, 17
19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28
29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37,
38, 39.

45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50
52, 53, 54, 55, 56,

48, 75, 76, 77, 79 ...

Yrs sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams
