Dear Martin:

I do not know if it has been formally published. However, it is on record. It
is in a four part e-mail msg. I will shortly post them. The excerpt is only a
very small part of them.

As for my personal opinion of CWL's clairvoyance, one thing is for sure. He
was right in picking up K, IMHO.

Since K had known him for years, he must be speaking from personal knowledge.
The only other indirect reference to CWL's clairvoyance is in Ernest Wood's
book - Is This Theosophy?. Ernest Wood was his private secretary for years and
hence he was also speaking from personal knowledge.

Recently I learnt that Tillett's thesis contains a lot of information than
published in his book -- Elder Brother. I do not know if there is any
additional info in the thesis to throw light on CWL's clairvoyance.

Happy new year to one and all.
