Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Maud Karpeles

Letter No.: 

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Dear Maud
How nice of you to write - & of the school to send me their message. I was much interested to hear of the school - & its splendid I think that you are really in charge now - that's what I've always wanted - I wish you would preach a sermon to us one day.
I am just beginning to walk about now & am to be allowed to go to Bournemouth to conduct next week.
P.S. I see I did not say that we go to B'mouth on Monday to lounge in a smart Hotel for a few days by way of recuperating - so alas! we must put off meeting
