He came personally to instruct an American pupil previously selected by the Order; and that student now a member of the Order, was the instructor for nearly twelve years of Florence Huntley. She has written a book, "Harmonics of Evolution," a work that is approved by the Brotherhood of India. It is based on Natural Science and to be taught by the modern Masters of the Law. We are not informed as to whether the Order has been yet organized in the United States. Address Box 997, Chicago, Ill."
