Cari Fratres, Sorores, et Amici,
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Just under two years ago, the Sekhet-Maat Lodge Library received the
Yorke Collection and OTO Archive of Crowley's work on microfilm: over
25,000 images of Crowley's diaries, notes, papers, letters, and more.
These essential resources of Crowley's work, once only accessible by a
special trip to the Warburg in England, are now openly available to
researchers in the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, we have received the
generous donation of 28 rolls of microfilm of selected Sloane
Manuscripts, including many important Elizabethan texts. The complete
collection of microfilm, available for the public access, is unique in
the world. Nowhere else, that we know of, can you find all these
materials under one roof.
In order to make use of these resources, Sekhet-Maat Lodge has obtained
a microfilm reader with a digital interface, computer, locking glass
case, and the furniture to hold it all, housed in our currently existing
dedicated space in Portland. We look forward to adding more microfilm
collections of relevance in the future. We've been asked to pay back
only $2000 of the costs of this equipment--a fraction of the retail
value. Since then, we've raised over $1500, thanks to the generosity of
many here in Portland and around the world, and we are now asking you to
help push us past that goal. Please click the "Donate" button at the
page below and specify the amount that you would like to donate. We
currently have $475 left to raise.
Once we have paid for the equipment, all additional funds raised through
this effort will go toward library improvements by way of further
acquisition of books, microfilm and needed equipment and furniture.
Thanks so much, in advance, for your support.
Love is the law, love under will.
In Universal Brotherhood,
