FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Robert E. Howard


Thanks for Howard's letter, and thanks for his appreciation of Lovecraft's poem "The Dweller" (and more on the Fungi from Yuggoth); on Howard's "The Moon of Skulls" and looking forward to his "Hills of the Dead"; on Howard's Celtic prehistory and philology, on archaeology as a check on legendry (particularly in the British Isles), seguing into the euhemeristic theory on the origin of faeries and witch-cults with a dark-complexioned aboriginal race, leading in turn to theories on the rise of civilization; sharing the praise of Frank Belknap Long and Clark Ashton Smith for Howard's fiction and verse.
