T. E. Lawrence to Bruce Rogers


Dear B. R.

I've hopped through this, and taken all but two of W-'s suggestions, and left one (Book VII page 5) for your decision. He seems to me to make nonsense of a line, there. Otherwise all his corrections are to the good. My length is to squeeze the last drop of juice from the Homeric orange. As long as it's juice it won't feel slow; these two books are good, I fancy.

As for the epithets, you take a load off my mind, and I have slaughtered them freely. From now on we will put in only enough to remind ourselves of a bad business.

Some of your markings, and my former alterations, in the other typescript, are probably worth combining with this
