   Essay (5,210 words); written on October 16, 1934. First published in the Californian(Spring 1938); rpt MW
   This poignant essay traces the amateur career of the recently deceased Edith Miniter, with a discussion of her household (including her cousin Evanore Beebe and numerous pets) at a rural home, Maplehurst, outside of Wilbraham, Mass., which HPL visited in 1928. The essay was intended for a booklet devoted to Miniter, to be published by W.Paul Cook, for which HPL had gathered numerous other articles, but the project came to naught. HPL also wrote an elegy, “Edith Miniter” ( Tryout,August 1934).
