Only a fragment of the draft for this letter remains, which forms part of Lovecraft and Howard’s long-standing and wide-ranging argument on civilization versus barbarism - Drafts to H. P. Lovecraft — Part 4 Essay introduction. It’s interesting that Howard should have decided to specify the “modern system” over “our civilization,” and the general tone of the changes evident in the final letter seems to be an effort to move past the civilization vs. barbarism argument.

Text unique to the draft will be colored red, while text unique to the final letter will be colored blue. Formatting (paragraph breaks, etc.) have been freely distorted to more clearly show were sections of text match up most closely.
