Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Maud Karpeles

Letter No.: 

Dear Maud
Don't you worry about those arrangements - I shall think them over - & if I like them they shall go through - but perhaps I don't!
I shd like M. Mullinarfor the singing - but if Mrs Kettlewell2 wants to do it let her.
I spoke to Colonel Somerville (late commandant of Kneller Hall) about M.B. for the C.D.3 party & he says he will fix it all up - H says he thinks the minimum band must be 25 & will cost about £30-0-0 - but will you write to him explaining exactly what we want & the amt we cd pay
Colonel J.C. Somerville C.M.G.
52 Cambridge Terrace
R Vaughan Williams

1. Michael Mullinar, pianist, presumably to accompany.
2. Lily Kettlewell, one of the Folk Dance and Song Society committee.
3. Military Band for the ?Country Dance
