FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Robert E. Howard


On the plurality of antiquarian sites in New England (with mention of Marblehead); on the history Bohemians and High and Low German languages (with some associated history of Germans, Franks, etc. including a diagram of languages, a mention of the Pennsylvania Dutch, revisiting the racially mixed Danes comment by Whitehead, etc.; on Donald Wandrei (with mention of his two books of bizarre poetry Ecstasy and Dark Odyssey); on modern economics (with reference to H. G. Wells' The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind and Oswald Spengler's The Decline of the West); praise for Howard's Arkham; more on Lovecraft's instinctive placement with Rome; on Mexicans and the Texas-Harvard game from Howard's last letter (and Lovecraft's own lack of interest in sports); hopes to see Howard's work in Weird Tales or the Clayton magazines.
