May 3rd [1918]

Dear Professor Murray

Thank you very much for sending me the verses. I doubt if they would make a good song - indeed no more suitable for musical setting than the original - why not then set that? The last verse lets it down so badly as it seems to me. But I feel so out of all that kind of thing now.

Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams
