They are all interesting, particularly the REH/HPL correspondence since we have so much of both sides. In addition, I'd recommend the letters to Barlow, which show HPL at his best and most human.

There are many interesting passages, particularly when he expands on Middle-earth. But he is not as engaging an epistolarian as Lovecraft.
