Content DescriptionRegrets she cannot identify the photograph sent her by Sagar, the man being 'so unlike the Lawrence she knew'; refers him to an identical portrait featured in Aldous Huxley's 'The Letters of D.H. Lawrence' dated 1912 but actually taken in 1908; suggests the subject might be an Eastwood friend, the fashionable hairstyle and outfit being so unlike Lawrence's; comments that if it is the L. of 1912 after she last met him, his companion might be his younger sister Ada; adds that she never met L's fiancée Louie Burrows; concludes by informing him of a new issue of her essays under the title 'D.H. Lawrence - the Croydon Years'.
