Dear Friends,

I have to say that I believe Alice Cleather's books to be
really imortant.

Alice Cleather on H.P. Blavatsky,
the Early Days of Theosophy & Neo-Theosophy

The following three books are highly recommended:

by Alice Leighton Cleather
Contents: first meeting with H.P.B.; Blavatsky lodge; formation of
the esoteric school; inner group; causes of degeneration in the
T.S.; the passing of H.P.B. An addendum contains: a posthumous
attack on H.P.B.; Mr. Sinnet's personal ambition and dubious
methods; trained occultist or irresponsible medium; inception of the
great betrayal; dangerous hypnotic practices; charges of fraud and

[2] H.P. Blavatsky: A Great Betrayal
by Alice Leighton Cleather
This book is a protest written by one of H.P. Blavatsky's old
students, who was a member of her Inner Group. It demonstrates as
clearly as possible that the teachings promulgated for nearly twenty
years by Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater of
the Theosophical Society have departed more and more from H.P.B.'s,
and are now their direct antithesis.

[3] H.P. Blavatsky: Her Life and Work for Humanity
by Alice Leighton Cleather
This volume details H.P. Blavatsky's life work up to the point of
her death as it deals with the Society. Contents: messenger and the
message, preliminary work in America; foundation of the universal
brotherhood movement in India; master of wisdom and their chelas;
great master on Buddhism and brotherhood; why the effort for India
failed; indelible stain on the S.P.R.; India's failure was Europe's
opportunity; work in England, 1887-1891; some personal
appreciations; writing of "The Secret Doctrine"; antiquity of the
wisdom religion; main tenets of the secret doctrine; moral law and
the "Great Sacrifice".
