Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Vally Lasker

Letter No.: 
May 14th 1914

13 Cheyne Walk
Chelsea, S.W.

Dear Miss Lasker1

Many thanks for your letter - if you come to the Polytechnic I should like to arrange if possible for you to take the advanced at all events and for any you had not time for must be given to someone else.2 Have you any one who could work under you & could prepare elementary pupils - to come, eventually, under you - If you have no one I was thinking of suggesting Mr Coles to the Ctee for elementary - do you know him?3
Of course if possible I should like you to undertake the whole - but I do not at all want to take you away from Morley College.  I will do nothing to interfere with V. H’s4  work there - & have told my people so plainly.
Yrs sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams
