T. E. Lawrence to John Buchan



Dear Buchan,

Do not distress yourself to answer this. It's a letter of realised thanks, for the great difficulty is over. I feel like a person home at last - to find everyone else grown up, or changed, and the house open to all manner of other people beside myself. A new camp is always such a plunge into unknown.

This is a very comfortable, peaceful, cleanly camp, and will be glorious when I have settled into it. Indeed it is then I should have written to you, and not now, the first day of work, when I am tired. But you aren't in need of beautiful letters!

My thanks pile higher and higher.

Yours sincerely,

T E Shaw
