FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Clark Ashton Smith


Classical legends as a source of inspiration (including the Oracle of Trophonius), Lovecraft recounts a dream (which August Derleth would later use as the basis for "The Dark Brotherhood," and with reference to the January 1933 issue of Strange Tales), and a later dream of returning to an abandoned 598 Angell Street (and being followed) and of a stretch of lonely sea shore, on a new story by Robert Bloch based on one of Lovecraft's dreams, a bit of fun based on some cuttings Smith had sent regarding Loch Ness, on a recent conjunction of Venus and the crescent moon.
