FROM Clark Ashton Smith
TO Samuel Loveman


Spring in Auburn, and Smith reading the Joseph Conrad books Loveman sent (Youth, Falk, Tales of Unrest), as well as Lafcadio Hearn's Japanese Fairy Tales, George Gissing's The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft, and Hearn's translation of The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard, and aiming to get the new editions of Baudelaire's The Flowers of Evil and de Maupassant's Love and Other Stories; on Loveman's depression and destroying his work; sold "Dissonance" to The Thrill Book, and Prohibition due to commence shortly (citing a Saturday Evening Post article predicting similar banning of tobacco and coffee); Andrew Dewing gone to San Francisco (and Smith finds it hard to imagine that place during Prohibition); hoping Loveman is in a brighter mood, and on the banalities of life (referencing Dante).
