----- message from Aliester Crowley ( -----

[re: group Reguli]

Below is a version ... originated from Michael Sanborn who has an e-mail 
address listed at his homepage:
Also he is listed in the Thelema Lodge online calender, but I don't have the
URL handy, though it can be reached through most O.T.O. link pages. 
     Mr. Jones tells me that his photocopy has notes that are supposedly
variations in the text of Crowley's and that there was more than one variation
of the elemental attributions to the directions.  Mine has the same so they are
apparently from the same source, a person named John Felcheck in my case, who I
no longer have contact with, but knew both Mr. Jones and Mr. Sanborn
personally.  I wish Mr. Sanborn would verify this matter but attempts to e-mail
him have failed to elicit any responce, so good luck.
