FROM Robert E. Howard
TO H. P. Lovecraft
July 1933


Later draft of 033-0227; preceded by an earlier draft in 033-0369. Several missing pages. On the mistrust of educated men (part of the east versus west argument), and by extension artists and intellectuals, as relates to Howard's concept of personal freedom, seguing into argument against the tendency of artists and intellectuals to exalt themselves and their work; on freedom and perceived lawlessness in Texas; on the virtues of the frontier (and not wanting to idealize barbarism); back end of an anecdote of an Easterner that got his comeuppance in Texas, leading in to Texas civility in general (with mention of Nazi Germany by way of contrast); Howard trying to make new markets, including a book from a British firm; a summary of Howard's points in the letter.
