Lawrence, in later life setting up as a bookseller and flogging off their replies (see The Letters of D.H. Lawrence, edited by J.T. and M.H. Boulton, vi, 1991, pp. 229-230, and Letters of A.E. Housman, ed. Burnett, p. liii; where however this letter is not printed). Housman was to die five months later.
