Griff congratulates Ida on her invitation to play double bass with the Hallé! "You must be making history for the school, I know you will play well and hope you will receive more invitations; I can imagine the thrill of playing the best music in the best company." He reckons she will have "lots of fun at rehearsals being bullied by the best conductors (save Thos. Beecham)."
He writes at his desk with his photograph of Ida before him. He apologises for neglecting her when he's been so tired, but urges her not to neglect his friends in favour of him.

With thanks to the Ida Carroll Trust

Part of the #NSM2020 project "A 20/20 Legacy: the centenary of the Northern School of Music" supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
