FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Zealia Brown Reed


On hack-work versus real literature (mentioning Frank Belknap Long, Booth Tarkington, Sinclair Lewis, Edgar A. Guest, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Harold Bell Wright); on desiring a steady job (and on revision work, with Long as a constant comparison and contrast); referring back to Zealia and repeating his writing advice (mentioning her "The Unchaining," H. G. Well's The Outline of History, John Arthur Thomson's The Outline of Science, and Will Durant's The Story of Philosophy); ends with a reference to Lord Dunsany's MĀNA-YOOD-SUSHĀĪ.
