'last Friday I had a jolly evening. Mother & I went and hear F. Delius "Appalachia" performed at the Queen's Hall. I do so wish you could have heard it. I dont say it's a perfect work at all, or even a work of pure genius; but it did strike me as poetic, & individual & genuine, & most corageously experimental. The new things he tried for seemed to me really pluckly & of vital interest & not the usual dull commonplace (& usually perfectly "safe") wheezes of so much so called "modern" stuff. Then such a lot of it was piano & tender-colored, & that is such a elief & refreshingness (original in the Bergen Public Library).'
