Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Alan Frank

Letter No.: 
[About 20th June 1950]

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

Dear Frank

                                                           Folk Songs1

Corrections & some suggested additions made by the singers at the Conference - Some seem to me quite unnecessary but I cannot gauge the mentality of the average W.I. lady2
Could these be printed on an errata slip and finally incorporated in a new edition, if any?

R. Vaughan Williams

1. i.e. Folk Songs of the Four Seasons.
2. i.e.  member of the Women’s Institute. See VWL1971 for further on the Conference.
