Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Vally Lasker

Letter No.: 
May 10th 1914

13 Cheyne Walk
Chelsea, S.W.

Dear Miss Lasker

Gustav von Holst tells me that there is a chance you might be willing to take some pupils at the Boro’ Polytechnic next season (starting September):
The terms are very low only 5/0 an hour - so I do not know if you wd care to undertake it.  The present teacher has resigned, so there is no difficulty about that.
Last term there were 72 class pupils & 4 individuals - but as I propose to abolish class teaching it is difficult to say how many there will be in future.
It is most of it night work.
I am meeting my ctee soon & should be glad to know if you will kindly let me put your name before them.1
Yrs sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams

1. VW had been appointed advisor to the music department at the Borough Polytechnic in South London.
