was mailed yesterday(Thursday) :

Dear Jerome,

I appreciate your interest.
Considerable dialog has taken place in
order to avert legal action. Actually the
Theosophical Society in America is not
filing a lawsuit. The situation to which
you refer involves litigation by
disaffected members of the Tacoma
Lodge. My sincere hope is that all matters
can be resolved without acrimony.

Thank you for your respect.

In fellowship, Betty

Dear Ms. Betty,

Our respectful greetings.
It is nice to have you among our

We have had information that the
Theosophical Society in America (Adyar)
intends to sue the Narada Theosophical
Society of Tacoma, Washington.
We will be publishing something on
this soon in"The Aquarian Theosophist".
A legal action is a public matter,
and such a fact certainly interests the
whole of the theosophical movement. We
feel that there will be potential lessons for
everyone in the movement out of the
complex situation now created.

We would like to include in the
same edition your views as the President
of the TSA. These are some questions we
submit to you, and would like to publish
with your answers:

1) Why suing the Narada
Theosophical Society now?

2) Do you believe that the liberty of
thought of the associates of the
Narada Theososophical Society
has been and is being respected?

3) In what way do you believe that
such an action serves the real
purposes of the Theosophical
Society (Adyar) in America?

4) What are the reasons to abandon
the policy of dialogue and
understanding and making the
choice for a legal action at this

5) Has such legal action any
connection with the financial
difficulties which the TSA seems
to be facing right now?

6) Would you consider abandoning
the idea of a legal action and
restoring the principle of dialogue
and understanding in the
relationship between the TSA and
the NaradaTheosophical Society?
What could be the first step for

7) We hope you agree to answer these
questions. If we receive a
response by November 18th, this
would ensure that it would be
included in the first issue reporting
on the Narada T.S. situation. If
you wish hardcopies mailed to
you, we would be glad to do that.
The Aquarian Theosophist is
committed to truth, justice and universal
brotherhood. You have our respect.

We extend our kind wishes and best

Jerome Wheeler
