Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Douglas Lilburn

Letter No.: 
Oct 22/48

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


Dear Lilburn

Please use my name as a reference and I will do all I can to get you the job - but I take it you do not want me to write to them until they write to me.
Give my love to Page.  I am so glad to hear about your new symphony1.

R. Vaughan Williams2

P.S.  I was so glad to see Page's Glee Club programme - I always want to hear all that my ex pupils are doing in that way.

1. Symphony no. 1 (1948).
2. Signed by VW, dictated 22 October 1948.
