Re Pound and numerology: this may be a bit off the topic, but in Pound's
letters to Olga from Rome in the early 1940s he often enclosed newspaper
clippings of the day's horoscope.  I got the impression that this was
Olga's interest, not Ezra's, but Ezra took to many of Olga's interests
over the years: music, Mussolini, etc.
