Dear Hamish ,
Here is a phony inscription six months after I gave you this book, but it gives it character while also reducing the books worth if you try and sell it.
I was drunk on the night of your birthday
W. Atkinson [? William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932 was founder of the Yogi Publication Society)
purchased from Masonic Temple Chicago.
This is an highly interesting exposition with argumentation of the fundamental laws of reincarnation and Karma – convincing and logical and giving full satisfaction from the philosophical angle.
The reasonableness and adaptability of these working theories are admirably worked over.

Young Man – my favourite student
Life is about managing self – internally and externally in relation to the wider society.
You are an astute and talented young man – to get to where you want be, this book may be of help.
Parents, teachers, friends and family show the options – you make the choice and find fulfilment!
