Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Maud Karpeles

Letter No.: 

Dear Maud
I am preparing the new F.S. Journal1 & I want the words of the enclosed list.
Where they are practically the same as those in the Journal already (I have marked these as far as I can) there is no necessity to copy them - or if they are in some accessible printed book. In that case merely copy those verses which are not in a printed copy and refer to the source for the others.
I can't bear to give you all this work but I don't know what to do.
But get in a typist or anyone who can help you at the expense of course of the Society.
Also I think we must put the counties where the songs are collected
- I know some of them - but I do not know where the following are (List enclosed)
Also had Mr Sharp2 any notes on the songs? if so might we print them
P.S. If words are very stupid not worth printing them

1. Journal of the English Folk Dance Society
2. Cecil Sharp, the collector of folk tunes.
