T. E. Lawrence to Henry Williamson

[1 July 1929]

If it rained at your end as it did here, all yesterday, then this letter isn't needed to explain my defection. Only if the sun shone brilliantly, and your hay is made, then I must apologise. It was quite impossible for pleasure riding. I can ride (at 30) on a wet road: but that's transport, not sport. Riding gets pleasant in the 40–50 range.



Not next week, I think, nor the next. They should give one another try when the chosen Sunday is dud.
