Care Frater Beatus:
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
The Greetings of the Vernal Equinox!
Thank you for your letter. I would say it was much too short.
Under separate cover, and by surface mail, I am sending you the copy of
The Equinox of the Gods I promised you. It is in the original printing,
but not in the original binding. The original was bound in one volume,
with the facsimile of Liber Legis inside a jacket attached to the back
cover. As I understand it, several copies of the subject matter and
Liber Legis were left over, having been bound in the manner as the one
I am sending you, by Karl Germer. I hope you will like it. Copies of
this important Thelemic Book are rare and not to be found anywhere.
If there have been other works since Über die Selbstkenntnis published
at Zürich, I would appreciate it if you would let me know and/or send
me a copy.
Thank you for sending me the address of Fra. Albertus. Will drop him a
line one of these days.
We had a pretty cold Winter. It is so for me anyway. You see, I was
born in Zapotlán, province of Jalisco, Mexico, a place which enjoys
perfect climate even if it is almost 8,000 feet above sea level, at the
foot of the Volcan Colima, (one of the peaks which A.C. explored while
in Méxiko) so that this climate here in San Francisco is a bit too
damp and too cold for me even after some forty years of residency. I am
sure someone like you, who is used to those severe German Winters,
would find it rather pleasant here even in one of our coldest days. Not
so with me. Anyway, I do have some relatives in the beautiful
Carmel-Monterey peninsula, a place I like to visit when it gets too
When are you and Sr. Barbara going to come to America for a Vacation?
You would like it.
Please give my Greetings of the Vernal Equinox to those who might
remember me. My heartiest fraternal Greetings for you and for Sr.
Barbara. Write soon.
Love is the law, lover under will.
