“Just read Belknape’s [Frank Belknap Long] epistle ? for ?’s sake chuck the free verse! Hope you got my letter all right. Have been tiring out my aunt ? taking her to museums, Van Courtland mansion, & Columbia College [Columbia University, presumably to get a repeat of the exhaustive tour of the campus that Lovecraft had had some weeks earlier from Long, who was then a student there]. Tonight [11th Oct] the gang dines at Belknape’s ? pipe de Jawn Hancocks [slangy: military / historical allusion + humourous black dialect overlay. Meaning: ‘stand by to receive their fancy signatures’],
Grandpa Theobald & aunt”
