T. E. Lawrence to Eric Kennington

14 Barton St.


Dear Kennington,

Your drawings all came down to the Colonial Office, where they had a tremendous success. The Department did no work for three days while the Office came and looked at them: and now the wives of the Office are constantly here in the dinner hour. It's very proper, and very good.
