A website writes that "Bérenger Saunière corresponded with the Bank Fritz Dörge, 4 rue Kossuth-Lajos, Budapest, Hungary – spawning conspiracy theories linking Saunière to the Habsburgs". This is then qualified by the statement that: "Nothing special here – Saunière was playing the Hungarian lottery and a letter exists from the Bank Fritz Dörge to Saunière relating to this dated April 1909". There is even a link to the Delcamp website - showing a picture of a letter from the Hungarian Lottery. There is mis-representations of another bank -the Banque Petitjean. See HERE.
But where is the evidence of a 'personal' letter to Saunière, as the website claims? Saunière is not named thus [on the letter or anywhere else] ... the alleged letter to Saunière does not name him but says 'Dear Sir'. In fact, it looks like a generic letter sent out to lots of people for no apparent reason. The very same website even states that this is what the Bank was doing by quoting another periodical which was making comments on the activity of those who promoted the Hungarian Lottery. They wrote; “The Fritz Dorge Bank is making another of its periodical raids on the British public in connection with the Royal Hungarian Lottery, a ticket for the fifth class being offered for the modest sum of £6 13s. 4d.” [Truth Weekly Journal, Volume 64, page 530, 1909].
In other words the bank is just garnering and soliciting anyone and everyone to play their Lottery. This 'evidence' presented means nothing either way.
I merely post this to show how information is manipulated to try and promote something very different, to fit a personal agenda - an agenda that everyone knows by now! Why should we 'believe' anything on that website and how it is 'presented' to us? Always consider the source and go back to the original documents is what i say!
