To the blind bass-baritone Sinclair Logan: "How jolly to hear your voice singing 'Maud' - and so beautifully too. It gave us both immense pleasure, & filled my eyes many times. 'Maud is not 39' - but she will be in a short time & I feel she wears well in such hands as yours [...]". - Somervells's first Cycle of Songs "Maud" after Tennyson's first collection of Poems under that name was published in 1898. - On headed paper.
