Dear A. C.,

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Just a quick note. Business, you know.

You are quite right about Liber Resh. Came to the same conclusion myself the day after I mailed your letter which maybe is an argument for writing out one’s problems for clarity purposes. Could you send me the four adorations? Don’t forget such instructions as which direction to face although I should think it would be deosil.

Your health. Is there any way that medicine of yours can be purchased in the States and shipped over? Is it an ephedrine you are using? I know one person who had trouble with asthma who was greatly helped by ephedrine capsules. Easier to ship that {than?} liquids. If you can let me know the specifications I may be able to do some good in that line. Don’t get me wrong if I sometimes seem flippant about that. I want you around to see if the big deal comes off according to plan. And the results thereof.

That £20 a month has little Louis over the barrel but if you need it you can have it. Whatever paper you want to put is OK by me. First payment will start this month. Shall we forget about that five dollars a month pledge for awhile? How soon could I have a copy of each of the 50 letters you have already written? (I don’t mean that, I mean ‘copies of the letters you have written.’) I am very interested in them. Will hope to pick up my Book of Thoth when I am in next.

Love is the law, love under will.
