Lovecraft on the Occult & God

On this day, 23 January 1931, HPL wrote to Lovecraft in part: As for the "occult" - I don't see any reason the change my views concerning the rlative probablility of explanations of reported phenomenoa. ... I have had thousands of impressions of unreal phenomena - false memories ... have given the careful study - almost invariably tracking down the real sources of the impressions ... I have likewise accomplished similar tracings of the bizarre impressions of others ... as for "God" ... absolutely nothing indicates such a thing.

HPL wrote to Lovecraft? Is that correct, or was he writing to someone else?

Oh my. I'll pull out the reference and fix this. Sorry.

Although I think it was to Derleth.

Thank you for alerting me.
