T. E. Lawrence to his mother


My head is singing like a kettle, after flying to Portsmouth and back today (Schneider Cup Committee meeting). It rained here heavily last Saturday. So I only went over to Plymouth (by ferry) and sent you a wire.

Next week and the week after, and the week-end after that I am engaged, on duty and other things. So my next free week-end is June 29. You will be in Droitwich then, I expect: and it would be better if I stayed that week in camp, and did not go out till July.

I have not done any Homer since the week after Easter. Very busy every day on R.A.F. work.

As yet I can't say what will be my movements in July and August, during the Schneider period. May go up only just before the race (Sept. 7) and spend its two or three days on a yacht, and not visit Calshot at all: or may spend 5 weeks in Calshot. Arrangements will not be settled till July 15th. I will let you know as soon as I know. If we go up only at the last moment I shall not be able to go ashore at all. It would be flying-boat to yacht, and return by air: that's what we did today.   

My head is stupid, so I won't write more.
