Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to A.E. Harvey

Letter No.: 
30th April, 1952.

The White Gates,
Dorking, Surrey.

Dear Mr Harvey,
Thank you very much for your kind invitation. I have to be in Oxford for the Oxford Orchestra Festival in June and also possibly later on, for a concert by Mr. Rose's1 choir. I wonder if we can fit it in with either of those dates; otherwise I feel I must refuse, with great reluctance, because I shall be very busy with other work, and I cannot leave it except under great necessity.
Yours sincerely,
R Vaughan Williams

(R. Vaughan Williams).

A.E. Harvey, Esq.,
O.U.P.2 Musical Club,
Holywell Music Room,

1. Bernard Rose
