Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Ralph Vaughan Williams

Letter No.: 
Wednesday smorn [8th September 1937]

Dear One -

The great day1 -
So hope the chorus will be as good as in Elijah - surely better - with that to sing - .
All is well here.  Josiah has break2 in bed - & Bruce Smith comes to see him - I shall be glad of this as V can get a clearer idea about food. He's a perfect dear -
Refreshing rain in night & lovely again.
If you want to send your suit case back by train there are the keys inside the case - loose on a label.
I do hope you havn't knocked your head at all.
No sleds of interest -

1.  A performance of Dona Nobis Pacem at the Three Choirs Festival at Gloucester. See R.V.W.: a biography, p.215.
2.  i.e. breakfast.
