Letters between Carl Weschcke and Charles Clark 1961 - 1991

Charles was the source of the 'Weschcke Documents'; a series of documents that were initially published in Aidan Kelly's

book 'Crafting the Art of Magic' (later revised and published under the name Inventing Witchcraft). Some of the 'Weschcke's' backstory can be seen in these letters.
