Hold down the ALT key and, at the same time press the numbers 130 on the
number pad (not the top row) then let go of ALT.  It is unlikely to
arrive at the other end of an e-mail though.

Who's bragging?  You seemed to imply that Brit theosophists were
recruited from "middle" or "upper middle class" people.  I would not
have mentioned the matter at all if you had not raised it in the first

But it isn't.  This is an anachronism.  The "class war" notions have
been dead for decades.

And how do you know I have not done these things?  In my younger days I
was very active in anarchist and socialist circles in London.  I believe
my name is still on an MI5 list somewhere.  I am not making subtle
little digs, just trying to adjust the record without making a fuss.
Please do not talk down to me - I am not a Russian serf, and I love you
dearly too.
