The Madness From the Sea: Part 3 18 April 1925

Why Lovecraft picked that day is subject to speculation. Chrispy does not know. However, one suspects that HPL was persuing minerals at the Patterson Museum and came across this as a packing paper.

In any event, only two notable items have surfaced on this date. On 18 April 1925 th first U.S. commercial transcontinental radio transmission of radio facsimile was sent from San Francisco, CA to New York City; nine photographs were transmitted and each took seven minutes.

``shudders`` were these nine pictures of Cthulhu Island?? :)

Also on 18 April 1925 a long standing 100 degree record heat hit Dallas, Texas. Did the dreams of madness boil Texas?
