A week after leaving the hotel in Trieste, we received a communication advising:
The Orion Association announces the Rebirth of Operative Freemasonry thanks to the realization, in laboratory, of the Philosophical Stone. The Orion Association is able to provide to its members the instructions regarding Freemasonry's Operativity and the complete Formula for the realization of the Philosophical Stone. ...and explaining how to deposit our USD 2100 in a bank account in Trieste in order to acquire the mentioned instructions.
