5 Sep 1949 – Magickal debts

5 Sept 49

Care Frater Saturnus

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
I am minded of some magickal debts which I must meet before proceeding with certain matters. First I believe that there is a sum of 100 dollars due to you on two copies of the Book of Thoth. If you will verify this sum I expect to be able to pay in monthly installments of 20 dollars. Second there is a problem on which I am not clear. At one time I agreed to pay a sum of 250 dollars to a Dr. Marlowe (Louis Wilkinson. T) in England for prefacing revising and editing the Commentary on Liber Al vel Legis, sending 125 dollars in advance. I believe that Dr Marlowe is under the impression that I owe him another 125 dollars although I have never seen the revised MSS, or heard of any progress in the matter. It seems fishy to me, but if there is a magickal debt involved I must now pay it. Perhaps you know something further, and can give me your magickal advice.

1 Jun 1949 – Book payments

1 June 49

Care Frater Saturnus.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
It is quite possible that Roy picked up one of the last two copies of the Tarot which I received. I am under the impression that he took several copies of The Equinox of the Gods which I had paid for. However, almost anything might have happened at that time and I been non the wiser. I have three volumes from 666 of the Commentary on the Book of the Law, but was under the impression that these were to be revised, with an introduction from Wilkinson. In any event I am willing to follow your advice in this matter, as I have said.
Am I correct in assuming that I owe you 175 dollars? I will mail a cheque for 25 dollars June 11, and on the second Saturday of each month thereafter, until the debt is paid.
