      I've no idea, but wouldn't it have been something if the aged Arthur Machen had received it and then passed it to -- ?

      Although he outlived Williams by a year, Machen is unlikely, but his old friend Waite would have been an ideal choice, had he not himself died three years earlier. Williams had been in Watie's Order and had been Waite's choice to succeed him as its leader, but instead left to found his own Order (of the Coinherence). There's an interesting, if brief, discussion of this in G. A. Gilbert's biography of A.E.Waite.

      Crowley, in the words of Monty P., would have been Right Out.

      With all these Lewises, it's hard to tell Jack and the Detective Inspector apart, much less Meriwether.

      That's easy: Meriwether is the one who killed himself, CSL is the one relevant to this list, and Inspector is a sidekick given his own (tv-only) sequel-series.
