Abstract
HPL had completed writing the story by Dec. 27, 1919 (HPL to R Kleiner, 1919 Dec 27: "I have just finished a ghastly tale entitled 'The Statement of Randolph Carter', based on an actual dream of mine ...", T35:90). It was first published in The Vagrant, No. 13 (May 1920). This single-spaced typescript was probably prepared in late-1922 or early-1923. It was one of the five typescripts that HPL submitted to Weird Tales in late-April or early-May 1923 (SL 128, HPL to James F. Morton, May 3, 1923: "Once again I have followed a Mortonian tip ... and have slipped Weird Tales five of my hell-beaters ... Dagon, Randolph Carter, Cats of Ulthar, Hound, and Arthur Jermyn." This typescript corresponds to the version published in Weird Tales, 5, No. 2 (Feb 1925).
