T. E. Lawrence to Clare Sydney Smith

119, Clarence Road,
East Cowes,
Isle of Wight

29.VI .33.

This is a private printing of letters I wrote to Bruce Rogers, my famous printer, while the Odyssey was under way. You should shelve it with the Odyssey, and when sold together the value will go up. The letters are worthless alone; and not worth reading even. You will find in them if you search, evidence that I had not at Batten all the desirable spare time for the literary work which I had contracted to do. I wonder how that was? Ask S.W.S. and the Biscuit!

Did I tell you that Colin may retrieve the Biscuit from Plymouth and bring her to Hythe when next his yacht goes westward? Good business.

I seem to visit London often, these days. Do you ever get so far? Is the shadow of Singapore looming over you?

All quiet and well on my front.
