Scope and content

Programme of the concert. Inserted are typed and manuscript letters congratulating Jones on his performance. A typescript letter signed John and Renate (surnames unknown) from 5 February express their delight in the performance and the "amusing little stories". The typescript letter dated 5 February from Rebekah Young from Chester Music in London comments on the "large and enthusiastic" crowd and how priveleged Chester Music are to be associated with with the PJBE. The manuscript letter from Ian Bousfield dated 5 February thanks Jones for inviting himself and someone called Alison (surname unknown) around to try his father's trombone music and explains that his two ambitions in life since he was a child were to play the principal trombone in the London Symphony Orchestra (which he has achieved) and to play with the PJBE which he laments is now never possible. The manuscript letter dated 7 February from Maggie? (possibly Maggit?) and James (surnames unknown) thanks Jones for the concert and explains how pleased they were to get seats so close to the stage and how wonderful it must feel to know that "all those years of hard work have been heard by millions of ears and given such pleasure to their owners!" The manuscript letter dated 8 February from Adrian (surname unknown) gives sincere thanks for the concert and explains that he and Barbara (surname unknown) look forward to demonstrations of Alp Horn skills. A postcard from "Margt" (Margaret) dated 8 February gives thanks for the "delicious and most entertaining evening" last week and for the successful concert that was "just like a party". The manuscript greeting card from "Macea" ?, on 17 February, mentions some "illegal" photographs took of the concert (not included with the letter), thanks Jones for the hospitality and hopes he realises how many people he has inspired and how he "educated audiences on the depth of feeling that could be heard from the pieces of metal we chose to play." They finish by updating Jones on their progress of to do with their new Natural trumpet.
