T. E. Lawrence to D. G. Hogarth



Yours of 24/IV/27 last mail.

I'm afraid The Seven Pillars was rather a bitter pill for C.M.D. to swallow. The tone of it must have shocked him. I did not send it, till he had twice written to me asking for it. I've always suspected Cockerell or Garnett of putting him up to ask me: the old man was long insensible to such things, and seldom looked at any recent writing. It was a pity he ran into mine: but I couldn't decently refuse him the sight of it, could I? [45 lines omitted]
