T. E. Lawrence to Clare Sydney Smith

13, Birmingham Street,


Haste and pencil.

P. S. suggests 26 or 27 for Lympne: so can a Moth collect me at any hour convenient to itself from Hamble, Flowerdown, Worthydown, or other such aerodrome? And deliver me to Lympne, before or after lunch? definitely before or after, I mean; not during.

Then can a collection be made on Monday morning of my body, for carriage to Manston, b. or a.i.? definitely b. or a., I mean, not d.? Return S'ton. Tues.

It all reminds me of the P. of W. How alphabetical we grow!

A most unfortunate week. Engines on test daily and all day at Hythe. I have to leave poor F/Lt. Norrington alone to cope with them all. We had arranged double shifts so carefully - for it is his holiday, with family, complete!


P.S. - Sir Philip Sassoon
P. of W. - Prince of Wales
