A Lovecraft Letter In Detail: Part 1

In this series, we'll examine a letter in detail. It was recently sold on ebay for many thousands of dollars. I have disected it so that we can discuss it in small bits. Hana has aided me with the technical portions of the handwritng, paper, and penmanship.

In addition, I will prvide a transcript as close as can be made of the cramped handwriting.

Nov. 29, 1930 [added by Clark Ashton Smith it is believed. HPL somehow misdated the letter.]

Oct '29
Monolith of the Shoggoths
-Vale of Pnath
