T. E. Lawrence to Clare Sydney Smith

[Derby Day, 5 June 1929]

Our trip last night was just 13 miles; up the Lynher (St. Germans, where the band played God Save The King, is on the Tiddy) to Poldrissick, where the mine was. So it was not so far as Cotehele. To-day they are running the Derby, and it will be "on" in our hut between 2.30 and 3, for anyone who wishes to hear. If the weather is fine there is a rather cleaner grass bank outside the windows as an alternative position.

T. E. S.
