From J. Steuart Wilson, 10, Edwardes Square, Kensington, W.

My dear V.W.

I wish I knew what to say to you about the Symphony.1  I'm still much to2 excited to do anything but read over & over the programme & dream the whole thing to myself.  What I do feel is that not one of us is worthy to sit in the same room as you in this world, or to black your boots in the next (supposing that you'll have any then.)

Ever yrs

JSW
