Annotation

A tract by 1698 [A Philadept] appealing for adepts to identify themselves. The former essay is longer and develops the utopian aspects more explicitly, but here the author proposes that if Adepts appear they should be made naturalized citizens and declared sacred to protect them. They will be allowed to have 15,000  pounds of gold and silver minted each year as long as they pay the government 5,000  pounds each year. See also 1698 A Philadept. An Essay Concerning Adepts and 1700 Annus Sophiae Jubilaeus .
