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

Dear Denis

The show on Oct 24 & 25 may have to be postponed - I will let you know as soon as possible - but meanwhile don't lose another good job for it.1
By the way I am empowered to offer you the magnificent sum of £5-5-0 instead of the £3-3-0 originally allowed me!

R. Vaughan Williams

1.   VW had invited Dowling to take the speaker’s role in The Bridal Day (CW 1938/ 6), his and Ursula Wood’s masque which it was planned to produce at Cecil Sharp House.
