Happy Eastertide !

In 1895 at the age of 5, Lovecraft declared to his Grandmother Rhoby that he did not believe in the Easter story, Sunday School, or God. He never looked back. She would have been devastated, no doubt. The grandparents were Baptist and attended the classic Roger Williams First Baptist Church.

This image is from an 1895 Easter card. It appears to be a tree sparow on a dogwood, something I can see today outside my Kentucky window.
