Page 1 transcription, image, and notes

The devoted student of the Kabala doubts. How many souls have been wrecked by that same sin. Abraham is a mystic by birth but his modern education has spoiled him. He must be given some insight about the “Masters” and their connection with the Society to make him a valuable member. A crisis is impending when some of the best members will lose their heads. Take counsel at once with the best of Fellows and do not delay. Weed out all error with a strong hand. You must help yourselves first and when you do so other help will soon follow.
