Delius in London - 30 May, 1899

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, page 156:

Here I am again & glad to be back again I can tell you - I was sorry I did not see more of you - the work I had was quite too much for a man who is accustomed to quietness - The concert turned out far better than I had expected & may be called an artistic success - I was sorry not to have been able to meet you after the concert & gather your impressions - I was overwhelmed by receptions & had to rush away from London -
