T. E. Lawrence to his family



I'm afraid there is nothing to say this week either, William of Tyre, Cunninghame Graham and Aristophanes appeared duly. Very many thanks. One does not read them much, but the fact of their being on hand gives one a sense of security. It's like having a balance in books. Clayton has got back. Everything here is going excellently, though as ever there is enough to do.  Arnie will be glad to hear I am printing stamps for the Sherif of Mecca. I'll send him some when they come out. Of course they are only a provisional issue. It's rather amusing, because one has long had ideas as to what a stamp should look like, and now one can put them roughly into practice. The worst is they can only be little designs, not engraved, so that the finer detail is not possible. I'm going to have flavoured gum on the back, so that one may lick without unpleasantness. I saw Kerry a day or two ago, for a few minutes. He is at Ismailia, with a post and telegraph company, I fancy or motor cyclists. They have never heard of Hugh Whitelocke here. I think he must be at Luxor. No news otherwise.
