    Does the author mean moral integrity in the text below?

    Phoenix-like, however, he caused lumps chalk to be conveyed to his father at irregular intervals; for he saw, with the astuteness that had discomfited Lord John Darcy, that his father's belief had really been shaken by the argument. The outworks held; the citadel crumbled. In the deepest shrine of sub-consciousness Timothy Bird, or, rather, Something that was in very truth not Timothy Bird, knew that the world was not made in six days, that the Book of Genesis was a Jewish fable, that the whole structure of "revelation" was a lie, that the Incarnation and the Atonement were but dreams.
    Armed, therefore, with the integrity described by Horace and the billiard chalk, John Nelson Darby Bird went to Carnswith Towers by the 3:45 for a final wrestle with the Angel.

    Aleister Crowley, The Deat Bed Repentance, 1918

    Re: Integrity

    The full phrase is "the integrity described by Horace" and I cannot know what he is talking about, but I have to guess based on context. In any case, it has to be moral integrity. What else could it be?
