T. E. Lawrence to Clare Sydney Smith

Myrtle Cottage,
John Street,


Bang goes this week-end, too. I am to proceed to Redhill by road, taking with me the completed draft of my handbook to the 200 class of R.A.F. seaplane tenders... and to go on to London next Monday on the same business. That is that!

I have finished the new dinghy testing: the Hyland control testing: and (almost) the handbook. Remains the handing over of the 17 new boats of the 200 class (two weeks hard work) and the testing of an experimental boat (two ditto . . .).

Working on one's own gives no excuse for weekends. Week-ends are only plausible when everybody takes them, as in camp. Here, at Hythe, they seem quite 'inadmissible.'

However, I will report lack of progress steadily until the free Saturday dawns: and then, heigh for Hamble (or will it rain?)!
