T. E. Lawrence to Pat Knowles

Mr. B. Smith,
3 Belvedere Crescent,
London, S.E.1


Dear Pat,

I've spent all today with Press Association bosses, and Press Photographing Agencies, making quite a lot of ground. There are good hopes, I fancy, of persuading all of them to leave me alone, and to refuse to buy the stolen products of the freelancers. I shall know for certain in about three days time; and if successful I shall try to get back to Clouds Hill early next week.

Will you send me current stuff (and any news or needs you have) to this old address, between now and Saturday?

I hope nothing disastrous has overtaken our place.

Yours ever


Romsey on Sunday night; and London by p.m. Monday: 75 miles that second day! Improving!

Note: Lawrence was using the name Smith on London at this time.
