FROM Robert E. Howard
TO August Derleth


Condolences for the deaths in Derleth's family, and ruminations on death; on Derleth's "Retreat to Nature" (and Howard's general ignorance of trees, animals, etc.), leading in to some untitled verse; glad to hear Derleth's sales and publishing have done well, Howard himself has not written a weird tale for almost a year; enjoyed Derleth's "Lesandro's Familiar" and Clark Asthon Smith's and Edgar Daniel Kramers' poems in Weird Tales, but asking Derleth to ignore his forthcoming "Black Canaan" (based on the real Kelly the Conjur-man); thanking Derleth for the photograph, and enclosing one of his own. Postscript on Howard's method of making mint juleps.
