T. E. Lawrence to A. E. Chambers

Saturday 10 March [1923]

Dear Jock

You will have thought me slow in sending you this: but I am contented only to have remembered it. I go to seldom to Chingford, where my books lie idle: and when I go have many things to look after.

I hope you will like it: had it not been meant to improve the American Navy it would have been a better book: but at least that is an honourable fault, and the particular aim was achieved. I would willingly have done something in this manner upon the R.A.F. - a much finer show than the States' Navy of 1820:- but that's another of the undone things.

The book is part of a set, so I hope you'll be able to return it eventually: (J.H. Ross, Pole Hill, Chingford, Essex): for it's my ambition some day to live there and read again.

Yours ever


Above address will always find me - at long last: and don't hesitate to write if you think I can ever be of use to you. Probably I go abroad in October.
