Is Bruce putting words and thoughts in my mouth and mind???!!

I like the way you think you know what I really think
and believe!!

How in heavens do you come to some of your

Where does one start to answer all of your
suppositions -- one piled upon another?!!

I hope that the campaign to get Adyar to open their archives
and publish all the relevant Judge documents
is successful!  All of this material should
have been available years ago.  Also the Pasadena
TS and their archives also has many relevant documents
concerning the Judge case, etc. that should be made available
and published.

My own personal experience has been that sometimes Adyar and 
sometimes Pasadena has provided me with valuable archival material
and other times they have declined to provide material.  I don't know
what their motivations were for declining certain material.

I have always considered myself an outsider with these groups 
although I am a member of both groups.  I probably ask too many 
questions and I have published material that both groups probably 
didn't want published! or circulated!

If I have any expertise at all it is with the Blavatsky material.  I 
have focused most of my attention and efforts on trying to collect 
and understand the history of the movement up to HPB's death.  But I 
also try not to prejudge things. I try to look at the evidence pro 
and con and then try to let the evidence tip the scales for me.  
That is why I wanted years ago to study all the material relating to 
the Hodgson/Coulomb case.  etc. etc. I slowly came to the opinion 
that what Hodgson and Coulomb said about HPB was not true.  BUT I 
didn't just read and accept what Waterman/Carrithers or Harrison or 
Cranston wrote. I went to the original material and read and studied 
it for myself.  Have you, for example, personally read and carefully 
studied Hodgson's Report?? and then looked at dozens of other 
relevant documents and collated all of this together???  I have and 
one can gain some very important insights, etc.

As regards the controversy surrounding Mr. Judge, I am very much for 
to be made available and published either in books or on the web.

As to my comments about Pelletier's book, I believe my statements 
are factual and true. Please show me where I have misstated 
something.  Goodness I said Pelletier's book contained a treasure 
trove of good material. But I also stand by my other statements.
