Lovecraft: Struck by the Cold - in August!

{30 August 1935} "Almost knocked down by the cold, but on my way! ...Virginia seems really bleak & strange ... am dodging showers & circulating among the Poe vestigia. Just now on a bench in Capitol Park with a squirrel virtually climbing over me. ...Yrs between tooth-chatters - Melmoth III.

[Postcard described by ST Joshi as 'The Old Stone House and Enchanted Garden, Edgar Allen {sic} Poe Shrine, Richmond Virginia' The mispelled middle name is crossed out and spelled correctly, according to Joshi.]

Letters of H P Lovecraft and Donald Wandrei, p. 360, 361
