Clark Ashton Smith

A letter from H.P. Lovecraft to Clark Ashton Smith... for sale on eBay. I love it that the envelope is still kicking around.

From my catalogue of Lovecraft letters I offer another early letter from H.P. Lovecraft to Clark Ashton Smith. Lovecraft has a cold which may account for the relative brevity of the letter...HPL writes..."Your appreciated hope that I escape the grippe came just too late to save me from a mild attack! A cold after sneaking about for some two weeks finally developed into the popular malady and had me pinned securely down to the bed Saturday & Sunday."
