Lipton’s Journal/January 31, 1955/383
What I am doing with letters now is what I used to do with the Tarot cards. I believe I could give Tarot readings now if people were to choose letters of the alphabet. And indeed there are twenty-two cards in The Major Arcana. 1 to 21 and 0. The twenty-one consonants—this is sheer shit, just this bit—and 0 for the cipher, the fool who is mankind, I. But The Major Arcana to the side, I think I might have a go at letters. I’ll just ask people to choose a letter, tell it to me, or rather write it down, then choose another letter.
