Letter No.: 
VWL2155
Feb 13 [1947]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Douglas

I have been foolish enough to write another symphony.1 Could you undertake to vet and then copy the score?
If in the course of this you have any improvements to suggest I would receive them with becoming gratitude
On March 10 Michael Mullinar is playing through the sketch at room 46 Royal College of Music at 11.30 & 2.30 – could you (if you are able to undertake the work) come & hear it one of those times?
Yrs ever

R Vaughan Williams
