EDITOR'S NOTE

Hiram E. Butler was born in Onieda County, New York on 29 Jul 1841. After a stint in the Army, he had migrated to Boston in 1885 for a short time wherein he gave lectures on a variety of metaphysical subjects to the Esoteric Society of Boston. Butler would not remain long in Boston and had moved to Applegate, California. 

There, he founded the Esoteric Fraternity on a five-hundred-acre homestead, building an 18-room house for him and his fraternity members in 1887. They established a farm for self-sufficiency as well as a printing press. 

Butler published several interesting books such as "The Seven Creative Principles" and his most recognized work, "Solar Biology" in which he simplified astrology by basing horoscopes on sun and moon signs. 

We have compiled his speeches to the Esoteric Society of Boston as well as some papers he wrote on various topics, sprinkled throughout. We found his work quite interesting in an exoteric sense and believe it would be just as interesting to the general public. 

Butler passed away on 3 Nov 1916 in Applegate at the age of 75.
