Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra
December 31, 1951
Saint Louis, 12, Missouri
I am delighted to report the very great success of your Suite. I wish you could have heard the performances; we rehearsed leisurely, with plenty of time and the strings played with a smooth, fine and lovely tone that I think would have greatly pleased the composer!
A very Happy New Year with my kindest regards and my friendly congratulations for your success. It delighted me.
Ever cordially yours
