Robert E. Howard to E. Hoffman Price, Jun 3, 1936

Dear Ed:

Sorry to hear Pawang Ali has been banished. I can't imagine why. It was a fine series. However I'm sure you'll find another character to take his place. I haven't time to write much. My mother is very low and I fear cannot survive. I have little heart to speak of writing or anything else, but I will say that I have made several sales recently; the first two of the Pike Bearfield series to Argosy, another Spicy adventure, a Breck Elkins yarn to Action (now a monthly and has expressed a desire for a monthly Elkins) and another of the same type to Popular's Star Western. All these sales were made within the past ten days. Best Wishes,

Bob
