8vo, approx. 25 lines and 190 words, in ink, on personalized letterhead; previous folds, else fine, in the original addressed mailing envelope. A wonderful letter on his friend, T. E. Lawrence, Lawrence of Arabia, to an unknown correspondant, beginning: "To a cranky old woman from a cranky old man. Stranger. I love you." Kennington goes on to write of his friend, T.E. Lawrence who had been killed on 19 May, 1935: "Aldington has been a benefactor. T. E. lives more clearly, & nearer. The British grasp is approaching him. Some day they will have him . He knew his own rarity & was unusually conscious of the message to be given . to the country, firstly . and also to mankind. It was a life of entire devotion." Kennington describes him in loving terms noting his "vast energies," and his "wish to live passionately." He also writes: "He liked me. I love him." He closes by telling the recipient that she should go to the Tate to see his "second effegy," and to purchase the photos "which I have arranged for them to sell.". Bookseller Inventory #
