Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Elizabeth Trevelyan

Letter No.: 
July 30 [1944]

The White Gates,

Dictated for legibility's sake!

Dear Bessie

I want you and Bob to know that I have offered Leith Hill Place to the National Trust - They are anxious, I think, to have it but tell me that they must let the house and the immediate surroundings so as to give them an income. One or two desirable tenants have already nibbled - but no one has actually bitten yet.
If anyone considers it they ought to write direct to the National Trust, 7 Buckingham Palace Gardens, S.W.1.
