An Ignominious End

From Ian Jackson: ​
You might enjoy learning about the fate of the manuscript of [D.H. Lawrence's] Sea and Sardinia. Frieda Lawrence writes in Not I, but ​the Wind (p. 133):
One day I found the manuscript of 'Sea and Sardinia' in the W.C. at Fontana Vecchia. So I told him: 'But why did you put it there, it's such a pity, it's so nicely written and tidy.' I had then no idea it might have any value, only regretted the evenly written pages having this ignominious end. But no, he had a passion for destroying his own writing.
