This chapter discusses Ad Astra sanatorium. In a final attempt to stave off his illness, Lawrence agreed with Andrew Morland, an English doctor, to spend a month doing nothing and then, he went into the ominously-named Ad Astra sanatorium in Vence. Ad Astra was not the most encouraging name for a sanatorium, all of whose occupants would be anxious about their next port of call. It derived from images of the sun, moon, and stars which decorated the building's outside walls. Ad Astra otherwise operated like a hotel with discreet medical supervision. It did not help; Lawrence was terrifyingly thin, and almost incapable of walking. He discharged himself from the sanatorium and wrote to Morland that Ad Astra was a no-good place.
