  116. HPL to Farnsworth Wright, 22 December 1927 (SL 2.212). The printed text reads “can” for “cane.” Neither sounds very pleasant if broken over one’s head.

  117. A complete list of de Castro’s books is as follows: The Monk and the Hangman’s Daughter (with Ambrose Bierce) (Chicago: F. J. Schulte, 1892); In the Confessional and the Following (New York & San Francisco: Western Authors’ Publishing Association, 1893); A Man, a Woman, and a Million (London: Sands & Co., 1902); Jewish Forerunners of Christianity (New York: E. P. Dutton, 1903; rpt. 1926 as Jesus Lived: Hebrew Evidences of His Existence and the Rabbis Who Believed in Him [London: John Murray, 1904]); Children of Fate: A Story of Passion (New York: Brentano’s, 1905); After the Confession and Other Verses (New York: Adolphe Danziger, 1908; London: Henry J. Drane, 1908); Helen Polska’s Lover; or, The Merchant Prince (New York: Adolphe Danziger, 1909; London: Henry J.

At the end of Jewish Forerunners de Castro lists several monographs as apparently published, although he gives no dates or publishers (Labor Unions and Strikes in Ancient Rome, The Position of Laboring Men among the Ancient Hebrews, Jesus, the Pharisee, Oriental Aphorisms, Two Great Jews); but I can find no evidence that these were actually published.
