My dear Charlie

You told me some time ago that I should be doing nothing amiss if I offered the original score of my setting of Miltons Ode “Blest Pair of Sirens” to be deposited in the Library of Trinity—An honour I should not presume to think of on my own account. I have had it put into a coat probably more worthy of such a position—as coats go—than the work itself, & confide it to you as its best possible godfather. Which you have been from the beginning!

Ever yours
C. Hubert H Parry
