FROM Clark Ashton Smith
TO August Derleth


On Smith's new typewriter; praise for Derleth's "Hawks in April" and wishing him luck with "Colonel Markesan"; on housecleaning and bookbinding (mentioning Sir John Maundeville's Voyages and Travels and History of the Inquisition); on Lovecraft's "The Dreams in the Witch House" and "The Shadow over Innsmouth"; on the weather; Clayton retiring and Astounding Stories' resumption postponed (dashing hopes for "The Double Shadow" and "The Death of Malygris"); sad to hear of the suspension of The Midland.
