    P.O. Box 76 Daly City 94016, Calif. 2.V.67 Care Fr.·.Beatus: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. I must apologize for my delay in answering your kind letter of 15.II.67. I had been contending with a coronary heart condition which I first experienced some seven years ago, but which I have always been reluctant to discuss or admit. At present I am coming along fine. Chances are, I might still be around in this plane of the living dear for at least one more decade, which I would hope to dedicate to work, study and consequently, brighten a little more the small ray of Light which I have thus far garnered, after so many years as a student on the Path. My aspiration does not die, much to the contrary; neither disappointment nor suffering lessen my motivation towards the noble Thelemic ideal. I am glad progress is being made at Stein, and pray the efforts being made there by all of you, shall be well rewarded. Stein is indeed a little bit of heaven; were it near one of the great metropolies here, it would have long ago disappeared. Here in America, change, agitation and turmoil is the order of the day. War and rumors of more war. The academic communities appear to be in an uproar. There are those who are ready to use the Sacred Teachings to further their own pet theories and personal ends; those who quote AC's writings and take advantage of the message Thelema has to offer, but fashioned after their own concepts. These people are not willing to identify themselves with AC or with Thelema. In most cases, their presentation amounts to a lot of ill-assorted nonesense [sic]. So, my dear Brother, even though progress there, does not appear to move as fast as you would like to see it move, rejoice and be exceedingly glad, because of Stein and what it represents, in its work and in the fraternity of its Gnostic community. We moved to a new address in the outskirts of San Francisco in order to get away from the smog area and three flights of stairs. Please take note of my new address. Re the book. I am sorry I do not have an extra Book of Thoth. I only have my personal copy, and also AC's autographed copy to Sr. Stai, (Jane Wolf) which I inherited from her. However, now that I have unpacked most of my books, will see what I can send you. It will probably be a copy of The Equinox of the Gods. Thanks again for the pictures. I shall be very glad to hear from you again. Please give my fraternal greetings to all at Stein. Will write to Sr. Chockmah [A. Aeschbach] and Fra.·.Paragranus [Metzger]. With my very best wishes for you and Sr. Barbara. Love is the law, love under will. [sign.] P.S. Am enclosing newspaper cut - out of such activities as I mention on paragraph 2.
