FROM George Sterling
TO Clark Ashton Smith


Sterling behind on his correspondence; hope the critics (including Porter Garrett) aren't getting Smith down; on Smith's book (appearance and sales); Sterling back in Carmel, answering letters, needing to be with his wife at Christmas, but will pay Smith's fare to come down and see Jack London and Hopper with him; on the weather and hunting; Sterling won second-prize in "The Lyric Year" contest in the Examiner (Orrick Johns got first prize; Sterling derides others compared to Smith's "Nero" or Heron's "Departures"), due to votes from E. J. Wheeler and Braithwaite, with Ferd. Earle not giving Sterling a mention.
