“Some Dutch Footprints in New England“


“Some Dutch Footprints in New England“
   Essay (1,420 words); probably written in July 1933. First published in De Halve Maen(October 18, 1933); rpt. MW
   Written at the behest of Wilfred B.Talman, editor of De Halve Maen( The Half Moon,published by the Holland Society of New York), the essay somewhat routinely discusses traces of Dutch architecture and folkways in Rhode Island. In his memoir in The Normal Lovecraft (1973), Talman admits that he engaged in a lengthy debate over stylistic niceties in the essay as a kind of revenge for what Talman felt was HPL’s heavy-handed revision of “Two Black Bottles” (1926).
