LAWRENCE, T. E. Autograph letter signed (as “T.E. Shaw”), to Capt. T. B. Marson, Plymouth, 7 January 1933. 2 pages, 4to, matted and framed with original envelope and photo of Lawrence . PRAISE AND CRITICISM FOR AN ASPIRING WRITER: "THE BOOK DOES NOT COME HOME TO ME VERY WELL” “I am posting it back today and am puzzled what to say,” Lawrence tells Marson, who was Hugh Trenchard’s former private secretary. “The excellence of the writing is the first thing: and the excellence of your eyes. That lovely passage where the seagulls come to your upper fields…that evening at work on the hay…a dozen places. But as a whole the book does not come home to me very well." The theme seems too unfocussed to Lawrence. “What you want, I think, is to get it into print and make something out of it. That will be difficult I think. Publishers are as short as the rest of the world, now, and are going only for the sure thing. Again I feel Beaverbrook is your man, if you can get to him. Do you know anyone who knows him? I met him once, and disliked him: but that is no criterion…” Marson was evidently in financial distress: “Don’t go bankrupt, if it can be avoided anyhow. I could lend you up to £200 if that trifle would be of use
