 Anyone interested in the occult in modernist writing might try my The Birth of Modernism (McGill-Queen's UP 1979). It looks at the background to occult beliefs and predilections in Masonic and anti-Jacobin texts of the late 18th and early 19th century, focusing on Pound, Eliot, with a little Yeats for spice.
   On another matter, one can find the Morley anecdote mentioned in previous posts in the following places:
"A Few Recollections of Eliot" in Allen Tate ed., T. S. Eliot: The Man and his Work. New York: Delacorte Press 1966, pp. 90-113. This piece also appeared in the Sewanee Review 74 (Winter, 1966) 110-33
