Thanks Jerry, Krsanna and Carlos,
Thanks for your comments.
I am at the moment working my way through The Theosophical Movement 34-part series 
on the Wisdom World website

This is giving me lots of background for the `Judge case' and all that went on between 
Besant, Olcott and Judge.

Here's a portion of the account given in the book `Hammer on the mountain' 

"During the next day (Jan.5th)he sent out fervent mental calls to the Great Ones beyond 
the Himalayas – and they responded.
At 8.30 p.m. that day (according to the diary) Mahatma Morya and Mahatma K.H appeared 
astrally in Henry's bedroom.
Marie Russak and Miss Renda were both in the room at the time.
They saw the two Masters quite clearly and heard their conversation with the Colonel.
Immediately after the two Mahatmas had vanished, Marie Russak wrote down an account 
of the meeting in the form of questions by the Colonel and answers given by the Master. 
This account is still in the Adyar archives"

Apparently on January 11th the Masters made another astral visit and guess who was 
present, Marie Russak and Miss Renda…hmmm.

Krsanna my experience with channels is very limited but I have heard a few and the main 
difference I've found between the HPB material and the other claimants to being in touch 
with Mahatma's is as far as I have been able to decern depth and profoundity of 

HPB material is profound and consistant most of the stuff I've heard or read from channels 
is generally seems pretty trite.

Thanks for your stories there classics 'Archangel Michael' PLEASE give me strenth !!!
That's almost as crass as 'Our Lady Mary' LOL
The snake infested lady should have gone to a pest controller ….sorry it really does get 
too much, you need to laugh.
