Asleep or reading the paper?
Although Crowley is not mentioned in this article, it is of interest because it involves George Sylvester Viereck (his boss) and Dr Heinrich Albert (his financer) during AC's stint at The Fatherland. The story given here of Albert's briefcase being snatched by Frank Burke on the train has Albert distractedly reading a newspaper, while Richard B Spence's Secret Agent 666 has him asleep (p 97). Is this difference of any importance? Who knows? Spence intimates the briefcase story is unlikely to be true, but it is interesting to see a new and seemingly authoritative version of it coming out here and now.
