T. E. Lawrence to B. E. Leeson



Dear Leeson,

I'm just off to Paris, ('peace work', they call it) and if I don't reply to you before I go, nothing will happen.

As for jobs this time: it is too soon to say. In the Hejaz there is nothing for Jidda isn't a white man's country! In Syria everything depends on the conference. We may find ourselves shut out, or let in, or on the same ground as the rest of the earth. And till the end of the conference I cannot tell you.

At present everything is evenly balanced.

If anything is possible, I'll do what I can - easily, as I'm not a competitor myself.

If Goslett is still in your orbit, please salute him from me.


T. E. Lawrence
