On Scott-Elliot

Dear Theo,

You will find something, at least, in "Theosophical History".

His wife was "Mary", the medium who purported to talk to Masters in sťances in the "inner group" organized by A. P. Sinnett.

It was there that C. W. Leadbeater started to "talk to the Masters". The magazine "Theosophical History" published the revealing "Autobiography" of Mr. Alfred Sinnett, in which he frankly tells all about it. Scott-Eliot was also a member of such a mediumnistic group.

When Sinnett died, Leadbeater wrote that in the 1890s his "inner group" made important "occult investigations", and so on. Sinnett also says that Annie Besant joined that
mediumnistic group after HPB's death, that is, while AB was already the "Outer Head" of the Esoteric School, Adyar.

So it seems that the occult fancies started precisely in Sinnett's inner group with "Mary", a pseudonymn for Scott-Elliot's wife.

I hope that helps, even if marginally. If you want me to, I can give you the bibliographical references.

Dear all,

Does anyone have - or know where to find - biographical information on
Scott-Elliot, the author of The Story of Atlantis and The Lost Lemuria?
I am not abel to find it at all in the usual theosophical sources.

Kind regards,
