FROM Clark Ashton Smith
TO H. P. Lovecraft


Apologies for the delay in the letter; thanks for Lovecraft's last letter with Frank Belknap Long's design for "The Tale of Satampra Zeiros" and Lovecraft's poems, praising both "The Ancient Track" and "The Outpost"; Farnsworth Wright not yet replied on "The Monster of the Prophecy," Amazing Stories returned "The Tale of Satampra Zeiros", news of a new Clayton pulp Astounding Stories, no response from the British magazines Smith tried; delighted at Lovecraft's use of Tsathoggua in The Mound, enclosing a clipping on Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico; thanks for Lovecraft's praise of "The Monster of the Prophecy," Smith working on "The Metamorphosis of the World" (published as "The Metamorphosis of Earth") and some 8-10 prose-poems, and half a dozen pictures; on Lovecraft's idea for an interplanetary story, referring again to "The Monster of the Prophecy", "The Tale of Satampra Zeiros", and "Planet of the Dead"; six inches of snow on the ground; would appreciate the loan of "Hypnos" and "The Statement of Randolph Carter."
