Letter from Gustav Holst to Edwin Evans

Letter No.: 
Dec 23 [1930]

St Paul's Girls' School,
Brook Green, Hammersmith, W,6.

Dear Evans

Yr letter of the 12th has only just reached me.  Would you send everything to the above address?  I am delighted with the scheme and am writing to the secretary to give my cordial support.
I hope you will rope in Penelope Spenser.1 I hope this for several reasons - partly because I’ve seen her in ‘Baedeker’.
When the scheme develops and you need members I think I know of a few recruits - my daughter Imogen for one.
Yrs Sincerely

Gustav Holst

(I shall be back in London on Jan 2. I left Gunterstone Rd some time ago).

1. Penelope Spencer was a dancer who is remembered for her modern approach to free-style dancing and choreography. This letter is apparently in connection with the Camargo Society.
