On 30th July 1921, Reuss issued another "Gauge of Amity" document, this time to H. Spencer Lewis the founder of A.M.O.R.C., the San Jose, California based Rosicrucian organisation.
This document also recognised Lewis as a VII° member of O.T.O. Crowley had met Lewis previously in 1918 in New York, and was not impressed with him.

Since June 19, 1939, the collection's core has grown in its present home, from the personal libraries of Rosicrucian Park founder H. Spencer Lewis and that of his son, Ralph M. Lewis, who established the Library, through the generosity of members and friends of the Order.

In 1909 the American businessman and philosopher, H. Spencer Lewis, journeyed to France, where he was duly initiated into the Rosicrucian Order and chartered with the responsibility of renewing Rosicrucian activity in America. With H. Spencer Lewis as its president, the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, was incorporated in 1915 in New York City.
The Rosicrucians, 8 June 2014 [cached]
The founder of AMORC, H. Spencer Lewis, was born in 1883. As a young man he joined the Methodist Church and later was director of the New York Institute for Psychical Research. He claimed that secret documents from the 18th-century Philadelphia Rosicrucians were transmitted to him and this set him on a trek to Europe-where, in 1909, he was authorized by Rosicrucian "adepts" of the "Sovereign Sanctuary and Rose Cross University"of Belgium to establish his modern Rosicrucian Order.
At Rosicrucian Park, one can also see documents proclaiming that Lewis was, in 1921, initiated by the "supreme Magus" of the Swiss Rosicrucians into the "Ancient and Primitive Oriental and Mystery Rites of Memphis and Mizraim, Egypt"--the "Ordo Templi Orientis," a group which is affiliated with many modern satanist organizations. He was also inducted into the "Chivalric Order of Oriental Templars" and given a hereditary coat of arms m 1933. In 1931 he became "Hierophant" of the "Great White Brotherhood Lodge for the Occidental World," a position he held until his death in 1939.
As "Supreme Autocratic Authority" and "Imperator for North, Central and South America, the British Commonwealth...etc., etc." Lewis built his Rosicrucian Order into a modest empire that, today, spends in excess of half a million dollars a year to advertise "the secrets of the ages" in popular and respectable magazines and newspapers. AMORC boasts 100 lodges in 31 states, 26 in France, and nearly 40 lodges between Canada, England, Brazil, and Africa. Much of the ritual used in these lodges is adapted from Freemasonry.
If a prospective member does not live near a lodge, he becomes a member of the "Grand Lodge Sanctum" and receives instruction and ritual initiation into the numerous degrees by correspondence Upwards of Seven million "monographs" (a year) are mailed out bi-weekly--all for a fee. The "neophyte" is instructed to prepare a "home altar" with a table, linen, candles, special rose incense (which he purchases from headquarters) and a mirror into which he stares while meditating (!).
