Abstract

"The Horror at Red Hook" arrived, Smith just mailed "The Immeasurable Horror," and returning "Pickman's Model" and "The Call of Cthulhu"; "Andromeda" to appear in Wonder Stories, with a request for more stories with the same characters, but Smith leery of doing business with Gernsback; during his trip in the mountains Smith drafted "The Red World of Polaris"; Smith deprecates "The Phantoms of Fire"; praise for Frank Belknap Long's "A Visitor from Egypt" in Weird Tales, along with Lovecraft's "Fungi from Yuggoth" ("The Courtyard" and "Star-Winds"), Paul Suter's "Beyond the Door", and Hugh Rankin's headpiece; Smith thinks Lovecraft underrates "The Horror at Red Hook," and "The Picture in the House" was received well by Genevieve Sully and her daughters Helen and Marion, as well as Proper Mérimée's "The Venus of Ille"; asking for the loan of "Polaris" and "Beyond the World of Sleep"; on "Red World of Polaris" (with reference to Edmond Hamilton).
