T. E. Lawrence to his family

General Headquarters
The Force in Egypt, Cairo


I'm writing just a few words this morning, because it has surprised me by being Christmas day. I'm afraid that for you it will be no very happy day; however you have still Bob and Arnie left at home, which is far more than many people can have. Look forward all the time. Everything here is as usual, only we had a shower of rain yesterday, and it has been cool lately. I am now living in the Savoy, which is the new Headquarters: the staff has been somewhat increased, and we have more to do: most of it is fiddling little work, but some of it is interesting.

Address me Intelligence Section G.H.Q. Cairo, as before. I must knock off now as a lot of people are waiting for me.
