T. E. Lawrence to his mother



This is only a line. I see from the papers that Eliot, who owns the Revolt in the Desert, appears to have sold its film rights. The company will probably take a year or more to make their film: and then a year or more to show it (films do die, fortunately, soon) so I don't suppose that 1930 will be my return-date, as I'd hoped. It will be a year or so later, perhaps. But it's too soon to start even guessing. There is so much publicity about a film, that I very much regret it.

I hope you are now back in England. There's a thing you might send me, after you get back. Bob could find them at any shop. Some DARWIN razor blades, for a GILLETTE razor. I brought out enough to last me for three years: now I'd better have a reserve: say four dozen more. Pass the request on to Arnie, if it troubles you, or if Bob has gone somewhere.
