Hello Jerry,

May I offer a different perspective on the above? Perhaps the TS was 
meant, as an organization, to be from the beginning a public 
(exoteric) entity, even though it may have had private (esoteric) 
beginnings. Therefore, the November 17th is, it seems to me, the 
date in which the Society becomes a public body per se, with the 
President giving his inaugural address. The following passage from 
the Mahatma Letters seems to suggest that:

"On the 17th of November next the Septenary term of trial given the 
Society at its foundation in which to discreetly "preach us" will 
expire. One or two of us hoped that the world had so far advanced 
intellectually, if not intuitionally, that the Occult doctrine might 
gain an intellectual acceptance, and the impulse given for a new 
cycle of occult research. Others  wiser as it would now seem  held 
differently, but consent was given for the trial. It was stipulated, 
however, that the experiment should be made independently of our 
personal management; that there should be no abnormal interference 
by ourselves." (ML #45, chronological)

Best wishes,
