Thank you, Frater.

Let me point out that your book on the Ciphers is the reference we use
when working on our redacted rituals. (You bumped Darcy K. from that
exalted position!) Your insights in the footnotes, as well as the
chapters of history and analysis, have been a highly valuable resource
for us, and we recommend your book highly.
