Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Maud Karpeles

Letter No.: 
[late June 1925]

My Dear Maud
Thankyou vy much for your letter & the delightful tune.
I fear I must bother you once again - would you in a spare moment look up Mr Sharp's1 original agreements with Novello over the "Folk-songs of England" series (e.g. Hannams2 book) & see what the exact clause is about printing the tune otherwise than with them.
How important do you think it is that I shd attend the General Council meeting?3
Yrs very sincerely
R Vaughan Williams

1. Cecil Sharp
2. W.S. Hannam published folk tunes; it is not clear to which book this refers.
