This chapter examines a letter Crowley wrote to A. E. Waite in 1989. In this letter, Crowley asked for information about an existing “Hidden Church” that Waite had mentioned in his The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts. However, the chapter also reveals that Crowley soon became hostile towards Waite. One of the many published attacks Crowley made towards Waite was towards the “arrogant” style and hidden grammar of Waite's writings.

Keywords:   A. E. Waite, Hidden Church, The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts, published attacks, arrogant style, hidden grammar
