Dear CAS fans - I have not yet unearthed some of my
Smith artifacts, however I found the textbook,
"A Series of Spanish Conversations: in the Conjugational
Order" - Clark gave me this old book which was published
in 1914 thinking I might find it useful. The book has
a sticker inside the front cover with the name
C. Wakefield, 2409 Edwards St., Berkeley, Calif.;
on the frontispiece the same name and address in a
left slanting handwriting. Below is the note CAS
wrote for me - "father of Frank Wakefield who did
"Genius Loci" cover." Clark already knew that I
considered "Genius Loci" one of his best tales, and
it remains one of my favorites as it touches a
deep vein in Irish mythology.
Anyone who wishes to own this little volume may
send $50.00 to cover time and shipping to
622 Atlantic St.
Corpus Christi, Tx. 78404
If no one wants it, I am quite happy to keep it.
Thought if would make someone a nice memento of CAS
since he had used it, and rigorously studied it.

Genius Loci is also one of my favorite CAS tales. It has a nice regional quality as well as a succcesful culmination of brooding horror. The cover of the Arkham book done by Frank Wakefield is also one of my favorite Arkham covers. Did you ever have a chance to meet Frank Wakefield after he and Carol married? I've heard that he was a chronic alchoholic; a shame that his very considerable artistic talent was a casualty of this disease.
