Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Martin Shaw

Letter No.: 
December 26 [1944]

The White Gates

Dear Martin
I liked having a letter from you very much.
We wanted news of your Joan because we had heard she was unwell - how difficult it is for anyone so active as she is to be told to go slow.  Easier for me who has had a habit of breaking bones, but yet not too easy.  It is good news that your work is out or nearly out.  I am as glad to have heard it, enough to find it lovely.
I think that Ralph has done the best for his old home.  I hope the fact of the steep hill will save the road from change.
Love & all wishes for better days from us.
