Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Jean Stewart

Letter No.: 
Jan 4 [1945?]


My lovely Jean
It was dear of you to write - though rather delayed. But I only hasten to say now that it wd be fearfully good of the 4tet if they would put the markings in the score & send it direct to Peterkin at OUP1
all my love
Uncle Ralph
