The Hermit is clearly Yod and the Popess does have a camel above her. But is that meant to be a letter inscribed on it? If it is it ain't Gimel.

But which Tree is being used? And how are the letters distributed on it? Attributing letters to cards in isolation is meaningless. Their position on the Tree provides important context and influences interpretation.

The GD 'perfected' Tree of Life with Daath from the GD cipher manuscript, which was given out at the same time as the Tarot lecture at most lodges, albeit without explanation -
