Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Ralph Wedgwood

Letter No.: 
April 9th [1898]

My dear Randolph

Ralph may see you next week in the New Forest1 as he means to join Margaret2 at Salisbury on Easter Monday & bicycle through the Forest with her.  He starts his holiday on Wednesday by going to Cheltenham.  I am going to be less adventurous & am going to Brighton. I hope we may have you here again - if you did not find it too horribly uncomfortable - you shall always be as erratic as you like.  We miss you very much.  We went to the Davi3 the other evening on Theodore’s invitation - the 3 brothers had been entertaining the Malcolm Macnaughtons at dinner.  I saw Charles for the first time - a great event - I think he is most interesting - do you know that his boots mildew? - he attributes it to the Westminster climate. Theodore looked most astonishingly happy.
I have not seen your sister but I did not expect to - but it would have been a pleasure.
Your affectionate

Adeline Vaughan Williams

1. On Vaughan Williams’s trip to the New Forest see VWL263.
2. Vaughan Williams’s sister.
