From R. Vaughan Williams,

Dear Martin
I should like very much to have what Gustav & I used to call a "field day" - when we wallowed in each others compositions - I shd much like your advice on some of mine & if I could make any suggestions which wd help you in yours I shd of course he proud.
The question is how to meet.
Adeline wd be very glad if you would honour us by staying the night here if you could put up with war time conditions
My love to Joan
R Vaughan Williams
