Prelude to Charles Dexter Ward?

On 7 November 1925 to Aunt Lillian, this tiny pericope stands out. "Loveman appeared, bearing as gifts two odd volumes of Jacob Brucker's "Historia Critica Philisophiae", printed at Leipzig in Latin in 1766 & containing chapters on the Cabbala {qabbala -CP} & Pythagorean mysteries. He thought they might have weird potentialies, tho' they turn'd out to be full of academic & historical matter rather than colourful formulae for evoking daemans."
