THE ROYAL ARCANUM As an only child who lost his father at an early age, Father wanted to be a member of any club that would have him. The Royal Arcanum wrapped their arms around him after he passed the initiation. He was thrilled to learn the secret password as he became part of a band of brothers committed to Virtue, Mercy and Charity. This fraternal order refused to accept “Mongolians,” but accepted Farther, who looked Irish because of his red hair. He passed for “White” even though he was a Jew, and finally found brothers he longed for as a child.
