Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Alexander Burnard

Letter No.: VWL3994

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,

Jan 1st 1936

Dear Burnard
Your Miss Una Gibson came to see me the other day – she seems to be getting on well & her harmony teacher R.O. Morris thinks well of her.
I am glad you are busy – though of course this interferes with composition. I am sorry I could not persuade Keith Falkner to sing your songs1 – I think I had better return them to you – I am not sure that looking at them and in light of further experience you may want to revise them.
My best regards wishes to you both for a prosperous & happy new year
Yrs sincerely
R Vaughan Williams
