(d) Select the symbol of the treasure desired, and the spirit will then shew it to you. Then place the symbol at once upon the treasure, and it will no longer be possible for it to disappear into the ground, nor for it to be carried away. Furthermore any spirits which may be guarding it will thus be put to flight, and you can then dispose of the treasure as you wish.

Notes to chapter XIX.

(a) The symbols of this chapter are manifested in part by the angels, and in part also by the evil spirits.

(b) Probably BELZEBUD performs this operation; as those of the twentieth chapter are submitted to him; and these two chapters are classed together by Abraham the Jew in his special instructions, the one being the exact reverse of the other.

(c) The familiar spirits can to an extent perform the operations of this chapter.

(d) Name aloud the person or persons by whom you wish to be loved, and move the symbol under whose class they come. But if it be not for yourself that you are operating, but for two or more other persons, whether for love or for hatred, you should still name such persons aloud, and move the symbols of the class or classes under which they come. Also, if possible, it is a good thing to touch them with the symbol, on the bare skin, if you can. Under this heading are included all classes of good-will and affection, among the which Abraham says that the most difficult thing is to make oneself or others beloved by religious persons.

MODAH = "adorned as for a bridal".

No. 5 consists of 29 squares taken from 49. ALMANAH = "a virgin"; hence evidently this should be numbered 4 and not 5, while probably no. 4 should be here placed.

No. 7. A gnomon of 7 from a square of 16. ELEM means "a widow".

No. 8. A square of 25 squares. NAQID = "remote offspring".

No. 9. This has a strong likeness to the well-known SATOR, AREPO, TENET, OPERA, ROTAS. It is a square of 25 squares. SALOM = "peace". AREPO = "he distils". LEMEL = "unto fulness". OPERA, "upon the dry ground". MOLAS = "in quick motion," or perhaps better "stirring it up into quickness, i.e., life". The former sentence is capable of a rather free Latin translation, thus: SATOR = The Creator. AREPO = slow-moving. TENET = maintains. OPERA = his creations. ROTAS = as vortices.
