Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Ann Boult

Letter No.: 
Sunday [4 February 1945]

The White Gates

Dearest Ann

I must write of R’s No 51 - I listened to it yesterday - far more perfect than any performance I have heard - Could it have been more perfect?  I was so unhappy that R had to miss it.
Words are poor things to express how grateful I feel to Adrian for this & for Sea Symph. 
All love
