    Anyone planning on attending Miskatonic U this fall? Need an apartment?

    If there are Rats in the Walls, the advertiser fails to mention them.

    Do you suppose that the front door requires a Silver Key?

    If none rents the place would it be The Shunned Apartment?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    I'm pleased to see that cats are okay. HPL would be glad of that.

    Isn't that rather inadvisable?

    Providence, you know, was named in the American spirit, and was one of the places Thanksgiving was first had, though I believe that holiday originated in Plymouth. But its name signifies the divine providence that brought them safely from England. That isn't the spirit in which Lovecraft wrote, but I suppose he found Providence to his liking, although he writes of the early colonists as debased.
