would probably sell for more than twice as much these days if she had
Tell me, what is the extent of your Thelemic Library? Do you have "The
Heart of the Master?" In this little Book is found the revelation of
"The Temple of Truth," relating to the Initiation of Khaled Khan (The
Master Therion). It is very important and most illuminating.
With my heartiest brotherly love for you and your good wife Sr. Barbara
