May 30, 1927 -- Letter To Hannalore Rhyner
Believed to have been mailed from Iran, just after traveling through China.
May 30, 1927
Much has happened since last I wrote. I shall do my best to try and inform you on what has occurred.
We have left Tsines' place and are now trying to find a Mr. Stone (*). There were several people with us. This large group of people posed problems. Most have left for the states leaving myself and Mr. Rand(**) to continue our job. I am happy at this turn of events as several of them were troublesome.
We are in Iran now, preparing to leave. I understand that Henry(***) is with you. Please send him my warmest regards. Tell him, if possible, that he missed quite a lot of excitement. I'll tell him about it the next time I see him.
I will write next when I'm in the states, but do not plan on being in Boston for several months. I have been under a great deal of strain, so please excuse the writing.
My thoughts go with you Hanna, my hopes go with you and Henry. Good Luck and long life to you both.(****) I hope to see you both within a few months.
Your Dear Friend Carl Emerson.
(*Thought to be Phillip Stone - a known cultist and sorcerer)
(**Arturius Rand - friend and fellow adventurer)
(***Henry Williams - Emerson's best friend)
(****This is believed to be written in response to learning that Henry and Hanna were engaged to be married))
