- The mention of Mathers describing the Secret Chiefs as having the appearances of having drunk the Elixir of Life is from a manifesto written in 29 October 1896, as part of a vow of compliance from Mathers to the Secret Chiefs: When such rendezvous has been in a much frequented place, there has been nothing in their personal appearance or dress to mark them out as differing in any way from ordinary people except the appearance and sensation of transcendental health and physical vigour (whether they seemed persons in youth or in age) which was their invariable accompaniment.
