Great info Frank!
I could not help but notice the mention of "Nihilists" in (7) and that
reminded me of the WW3 letters - which were supposedly written by
Albert Pike to Mazzeni. My research leads me to believe that these
letters were most likey not written by Albert Pike but are the letters
in fact a fake, in your opinion? I would love to hear your thoughts
on this and on my burning questions (I posted in another thread) also,
as I believe they reflected concerns of many people today.

living God," he who, thousands of years ago, had inspired Jephthah to
murder his daughter, and the weak David to hang the seven sons and
grandsons of Saul "in the hill before the Lord"; and who again in our

brought forward by the arrested leaders of the deadly secret
organization called "the terrorizing faction," is the salvation of the
Russian people. "The idol we sacrifice to is not self, not personal
passion, nor profit," says Goldenberg in his confessions, alleged to
have been written prior to his committing suicide in the
Petropavlovskaya Fortress (November 1880), but "the good of society in
our beloved Russia." Often, and unjustly indeed, has the Russian
populace been suspected of secret sympathy with their would-be
benefactors and redeemers; whereas the truth is that these modern
Sardanapali, who, prior to perishing themselves, never fail to destroy
dozens of innocent victims, were ever abhorred by the lower classes.
For long years have many of these educated young men and women,
masqueraded in the garb of working people or peasants, and adopting
the ways and language of the working classes of Russia, mixed with
their "younger brethren." By sowing dissatisfaction and filling their
heads with revolutionary ideas, they hoped to bring about the much
desired result-a revival of the days of terror in our own century-but
with no effect."
