FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Robert E. Howard


Glad Lovecraft's linguistic history of High and Low German in his last letter was informative; on Pennsylvania Germans, leading in to a discussion of British vs. Continental immigrants, Nordic instincts, old Americans, etc. and from there revisiting the matter of race mixing in the West Indies (and New Orleans, following Howard's comments on the pla├žage system); on Donald Wandrei and his novel Dead Titans, Waken!, a new pulp from Carl Swanson (Galaxy), on Howard making the Claytons (and Lovecraft not), praise for "The Thing on the Roof"; on international conflict, particularly the Japanese invasion of Manchuria; on Howard and the Picts (with reference to the Arabian Nights, Bran Mak Morn, and Abdul Alhazred); on games and sports (particularly ancient ones); on economics and Texas.
