FROM Clark Ashton Smith
TO H. P. Lovecraft
December 1930


Some fun regarding the eidolon; Smith having a cold and begrudging Prohibition; Smith writing a time-travel story at the suggestion of Wonder Stories ("An Adventure in Furturity"); Smith's "cold" turns out to be whooping cough; glad Lovecraft liked "The Ghoul" and "Sir John" and the joy of archaism; encouragement for Lovecraft's idea for an Antarctic tale (to become "At the Mountains of Madness," with Smith referring to "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket"); on style and "The Door to Saturn"; apologies for the poor letter.
