FROM George Sterling
TO Clark Ashton Smith


Glad to hear from Smith at last (joking he feared the censors had thrown him in jail); on Smith's picture (and lamenting turning 54); on Benjamin de Casseres' review (seguing into de Casseres' alcoholism, with mention of Lizete Woodworth Reese' "Tears"); praise for Smith's "The Barrier"; Sterling not sure whether to submit anything to the Smart Set since H. L. Mencken resigned; Sterling has written little except some love-sonnets and "The Pony Express," and a possible new dramatic poem, "In the Gardens of Caligula"; Truth is nearly ready.
