T. E. Lawrence to Clare Sydney Smith

14, Barton Street,
London S.W. 1.

25 . ix. 30.

Your letter was returned from 24 Barton St. and then followed me about. So actually the photographs came the day before it. Yes, I wish it was Plymouth now! I am having a lot to do: only Brough cannot promise me the bike till the morning of October 2: so I will have to take every minute of my 3 weeks. It is a pity. The last two days have been marvellous weather, and sunlight in London wastes itself.

As for the poor dog, I had been hoping that he was better. So beautiful a thing should never die and he was such an attractive and interesting character, too. I shall miss him very sadly at Mount Batten. You and his owner and the Wing-Commander must feel miserable about it. The un-necessity of the tragedy makes it so much worse.
