Letter to Clark Ashton Smith

From H. P. Lovecraft

598 Angell St.
Octr. 17, 1923

My dear Smith:--

.....Galpin is a case. With the most brilliant, accurate, steel-cold intellect I have ever encountered, he is yet distinctly erratic & temperamental Just now he has forgotten the fantastic & everything else except music & intensive scholarship. At the Univ. of Chicago he has proved a marvel, & after two weeks was raised from a scholarship to a full fellowship. You'll probably hear from the kid again when he recovers from the intoxication of accumulating honours....
