FROM Clark Ashton Smith
TO George Sterling


Asking for an extra copy of Rosamund: a Dramatic Poem for Samuel Loveman; on the second issue of The Saturnian, and Loveman coming out to San Francisco; on Sterling and Smith's latest poems, with mention of Louis Untermeyer and Nora May French; on Smith's illustrations for "The Hashish-Eater" and Edgar Allan Poe; on criticisms that "The Hashish-Eater" is an extension of Sterling's "A Wine of Wizardry" (with reference to Ambrose Bierce and The Temptation of Saint Anthony); on the Democratic National Convention (with a reference to "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar"); Smith too broke to visit San Francisco, and considering writing short stories or selling his drawings. Postscript: Smith eschewing hashish. Enclosed: "To Love," "The Whisper of the Worm," "To Nora May Frenh."
