T. E. Lawrence to D. G. Hogarth


A prolonged time without writing:- but there has been (and is) nothing to say. The Xmas spectacle of camp took out of me the zest I had won in Oxford. [5 lines omitted]

Arnie is now in the States (Boston, Philadelphia New York, apparently) on his way to England, which he will reach next month. Subscribers add themselves silently to my list:- about 15 now. Whittingham & Griggs are completing the first four chromo-lithos: and Pike (the suggested printer) is preparing me specimen pages. These will be sent you on receipt, about a fortnight hence.

Any progress with John? He is willing and anxious to try again. I only hope he will achieve another drawing as great.

Shaw (the genuine one) was here lately: full of quaintnesses upon the supposed oddity of my position in camp (now absolutely normal, though I haven’t been able to make myself like the rest in mind or manner). Also very bracing, though such sureness of success has closed his pores.


Address now: T E Shaw, Clouds Hill, Moreton, Dorset.
