Nothing strange about the letter

GW, being a Free Mason, surely disliked Illuminati (subset of Catholic Jesuits) and socialists alike. Vatican called Free Masons diabolic, so GW called them back.

Wikipedia: The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, "enlightened") is a name given to several groups, both real (historical) and fictitious.
