T. E. Lawrence to Clare Sydney Smith

13, Birmingham Street,


Twice lately I have paid fugitive visits to London: but this week I am to be there for two or three nights. So I have great hopes of our meeting.

The G/C sent me an admirable letter from his ship, regretting I was not with him - not on the ship, I mean, but at Singapore on the strength. I regret it, too. State-papers were once one of my strengths, and we could have written some bright ones together.

What a pen. All fits and stops. That was a stop. This is, too.

However, London this week, I hope. My name and address are

353172 A/C Smith, H.E.,
Union Jack Club,
Waterloo Road, S.E.1.

Telephone 403 Air Ministry. Room 366 c/o F/Lts. Beauforte - Greenwood and Norrington. Name of SHAW, there.
