Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Cordelia Curle

Letter No.: 
Wednesday [March 29 1947]

Belov Boo

R came back from Sadlers Wells1 a bit late as the driver (not Beagley) missed his way - he came in for the other caste2 & not as good a one - the bird had a wobble - that was disappointing - but he met several people & he & Fanny had a nice tea at the Ballerina.3

Joanna4 is to be out in 10 days - R met Mr Irving5 last night - one can't imagine its being a success. Irving told Fanny that R's music was more Romney Marsh than Romney Marsh.

Yr A

1. For a performance of Sir John in Love?
2. sic.
3. Fanny (Frances) Farrar.
4. The Loves of Joanna Godden, film for which VW had composed the music.
5. Ernest Irving, music director of Ealing Films.
