If you see at the bottom of the TS page there is an icon and next to it, it
says that portions of the material for this page was quoted from a pamphlet
that was issued by the Indian Section of the Theosophical Society. That is
where the information came from. INFORMATION, nothing else. The American
Section is one of many. I never intended to assume an official position in
the TS because I don't believe in official positions. In matters of
theosophy positions mean NOTHING; and that is something that the author of
the letter forgot!
