Dear Erlebach,1

I do not know McKay Martin very well, but he has always seemed a nice, intelligent man.  A great many years ago he had a few lessons from me.  He was a great friend of Hubert Foss’s, - he who thought well of him, and he was very helpful during the crisis of Hubert Foss’s illness. I am sorry, that is all I can tell you.2
Yours sincerely

R Vaughan Williams
