T. E. Lawrence to Edward Marsh

Carlton Hotel,

7.1.18. [1919]

Dear Marsh,

This is owing, since I behaved like a lunatic yesterday. But I have been trying for three years to think like an Arab, and when I come back with a bump to British conventions, it is rather painful, and I keep on deciding to put an end to it. However, nothing happens.

After I did come, I enjoyed things exceedingly. It’s the process of coming that's awful.

With very many thanks,

Yours ever,

T E Lawrence
