Letter No.: 
VWL1920
June 17 [?1944]

The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Barter

I hear that Sibelius is now well supplied with necessaries but longs for cigars - I should so much like to send a present of some. Can you help me?  Is it possible & what steps ought I to take.1
I do hope you keep well and that the Philharmonic flourishes.
Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams
