Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Jean Stewart

Letter No.: 
July 6 [1947]


My most beloved Jean
The OUP1 sent me this the other day so that I might correct their score from it - so I think I had better return it where it belongs.
I made a row about they're their not having made a set of parts when they had the score your set of parts & they said they were short handed! & they proposed to make a set off the score.  I said that wd not do as I had made the original set with all useful cues etc & they must reproduce those - so they are going to ask for the loan of your set once more!
All love
Uncle Ralph
