    Hello All,

    I recently found this book at an Estate Sale here in Palm Springs.
    It is inscribed inside to her niece along with two personal poems she wrote to family members. I would assume these were never published but want to know for sure. Does anyone know whether these poems were ever made public?
    Thanks in advance for any insight you may have.

      If it was published it would be in later volumes, perhaps The Last Quarter!, or the later Footprints Leading Whither. I am planning to visit the Houston Library to view those texts as they are "resource" materials. I have been looking for copies to purchase, but have only found the book you have and the Brimming Cup.

      Whenever I have the opportunity I will get back to you as to whether they are published or not. There are several library's here in Coastal Texas that might be interested in them. If ever you choose to sell these articles, please let me know.

      Hi JM.
      First I want to say that I hope this message finds you in good health.
      I was actually going through my collection today while enduring our isolation in Palm Springs and came across this book.
      I was telling my fiancé that I would love to find a descendent to give the ever so personal book and poems to.
      I assume by your last name that you have a specified interest in this and wanted to know if you are actually one of VH Lawrence’s family.
      If so Please feel to contact me at and I would be very happy to get these beautiful items back to the family where they belong.
      Take care and hope to hear from you.
