Summer Festival

Dear Mary,

We didn’t get an opportunity to say goodbye on Tuesday evening, since when I have been very busy (which is why you haven’t heard from me since).

I do want to thank you and all your friends in RASPO most warmly for your lovely entertainment at our Summer Festival dinner, which was greatly enjoyed by all present, myself, Anne and the next Lord Mayor of London (subject to election) very much included.  It was a splendid way to turn a City dinner (which can be very stuffy and pompous) into a Summer Festival.  Fortunately the rain kept at bay, so we were able to enjoy your music on the terrace as well.  What more could one wish for?

Very well done to all of you and I hope you enjoyed performing for us at a rather different venue for a change.

With all good wishes,
