FROM George Sterling
TO Clark Ashton Smith


Apologies for the late letter, and praise for Smith's poetry (Robertson having provided Sterling the MSS.), with promise of starting some good press for Smith (a la Ambrose Bierce and "The Testimony"); thanks for Smith's sonnet, dedication, and dedicatory poem to Sterling, but refusing to accept any of them; enclosing some sonnets ("The Coming Singer," "The Muse of the Incommunicable"); Sterling not interested in contests, but invited to a symposium of poets by William Stanley Braithwaite; promise to send one of Nora May's books; on Alfred Noyes (with reference to Alfred Austin); more on Smith's dedication.
