T. E. Lawrence to D. G. Hogarth



[23 lines omitted] Your Doughty discoveries are interesting. Where did he learn his geology, and his survey work? His map was surprisingly good, all things considered: and he laid a sort of foundation of our knowledge of the Arabian watersheds. There was much more of the scientist in the old man's intention, when he went down with the Haj (of his secondary intention, anyhow) than of the poet.

I sent you one letter of his which turned up amongst Clouds Hill papers here. I do not know where my other Doughty letters can be. There is only Barton St. and Clouds Hill, and I turned all the papers out of Clouds Hill before I left it. The cottage is going to be let.  [22 lines omitted]
