FROM Robert E. Howard
TO August Derleth
October 1933


Praise for Derleth's "One Against the Dead," and his poem (with an anecdote of receiving a hawk, and on the courage of animals, including a pet raccoon); Howard working steadily, and on beer, home-brew, and a night of drinking that ended with a ruckus (cf. 033-0151); wishing Derleth luck on his three-act play and that publishers will buy his stories. Postscript on the //Modern American Poetry/ anthology.

A footnote in the Collected Letters of Robert E. Howard suggests the drinking incident was the basis for a scene in Post Oaks and Sand Roughs.
