Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Peter Montgomery

Letter No.: 
[1933 or later]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear Peter
Thank you so much for your letter and I am so glad to hear of your new appointment. I hope it will mean a lot more conducting. I think the Mus Bac1 would be very useful to you and I'm sure you could pass it easily with a little rubbing up. The score reading is a very minor part of the exam. I have heard from John & we are trying to fix up a meeting. I had lunch with your Aunt Diana2 the other day & met Anne which was very nice in itself & also reminded me of my delightful time in Ireland. I am glad to hear that she is going to broadcast again.
R Vaughan Williams
