My dear Friend
Will you please let me have your reply reopening the terms for your Requiem about which you will remember I wish more than a month ago.
The Birmingham people are getting anxious about copies of the work and we have of course not been able to do anything up to this time - so please let me have a definite answer by return of post.
We have a letter some days since about a performance of the Requiem in Prague : we sent it on to the committee at Birmingham : and that the first performance must take place at Birmingham and that it could not be done at Prague till afterwards. They were very sorry but it seems only natural that they should come to this decision - in fact they could not have given any other answer.
Yours very sincerely
Alfred H Littleton
