Letter No.:

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

My dears,

A book as well!  Your generosity in time, trouble & things is overwhelming.  Thank you so much for all.1
Ralph continues to progress2 & the painters are making the kitchen habitable and pretty – so all is well.
I have the lining of Eslyn’s gloves.
Love from us both


1. Michael Kennedy had given the VWs The Outsider by Colin Wilson ‘knowing what his reaction would be but knowing, too, that he would prefer to be provoked than soothed’ (Works of Vaughan Williams, p.386).
2. VW was recovering from phlebitis in his leg. See VWL3347 and VWL3350.
