FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Clark Ashton Smith


Lovecraft has read The Star-Treader and Other Poems and Odes and Sonnets, and expresses his appreciation for Smith's poetry (especially "Memnon at Midnight, "Exotique," "Nero," "Shadow of Nightmare," "White Death," and "Ode to the Abyss"); on modern magazine standards and how neither Edgar Allan Poe or Baudelaire would be published today (mentioning Mencken); shares praises from Alfred Galpin, Frank Belknap Long, and Samuel Loveman; looking forward to reading "The Hashish-Eater," and thanks for Smith's kind words on Lovecraft's prose ("From Beyond the Wall of Sleep"), and is sending an amateur paper containing "The Music of Erich Zann."
