A special note from Brother Tom Duncan. Feb. 5, 2009:

I am writing to ask if you would spread the word to the Mountain Charlie chapter that a
new book about ECV is available. A description follows.

"E Clampus Vitus: Anthology of New Dispensation Lore" is available at: www.lulu.com/ecv.

From 1934 to the centennial of the Gold Rush in 1949, six volumes of New Dispensation lore
were written to announce and explain E Clampus Vitus. This anthology brings these six volumes
together for the first time in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the publication of the
first volume in the series. Volumes included are:
The Enigmatical Book of Vitus,
The Curious Book of Clampus or Gumshaniana,
My Darling's ECV: The Esoteric Book of E,
Ye Preposterous Booke of Brasse,
Credo Quia Absurdum and
Fool's Gold.

Many thanks,
