T. E. Lawrence to his family

Military Intelligence Office

[Undated, c. October 1915]

Another letter as there is nothing at all doing, and no hope of
it.... It's getting hot again: we had a week's cool weather about 92°-95°. Today it's up to 105° again. However it affects one very little. I haven't finished any of my maps - except the Gallipoli one, and that I cannot boast about very much. The machines ran for 56 hours doing it, and they have to have electric fans all round the motor to keep it cool!

We are sending Dowson, head of the Survey Department up to
Gallipoli to see the staff, and try and settle some of our differences. I don't think it is very interesting up there.

Did I tell you the wooden bridge at Jerablus had been washed out? The stone and iron has been damaged also. Good business:- I haven't anything else to say. Only there is a post going, that's all.
