Letter from Ursula Vaughan Williams to Michael Kennedy

Letter No.: 
[1st July 1956]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
10, Hanover Terrace,
Regents Park,
London, N.W.1.

Ralph strained his leg, rolling the lawn, O dear, because I said it was too wet to mow.  It swelled up, Dr & specialist said it is phlebitis, & it was to be kept up – he’s had it for 2 weeks now, & its on the mend, but it means bed or chair which is maddening when he is absolutely well except from right knee to ankle!  Nothing to worry about, the doctor promises a complete recovery, but cannot estimate how many more days.
