Walter A. Carrithers, Jr., wrote:

It is safe to calculate that for every ten thousand persons who have 
heard and believe that Richard Hodgson "exposed" H.P. Blavatsky as a 
fraud and imposter, not more than one has read his "expose;" and, 
that for every thousand of his readers, hardly one has ever seen 
Emma Coulomb's pamphlet.  And yet, by logic and every rule of common 
sense, the latter document takes precedence over all others in 
standing at the very heart of the controversy raised by the 
Coulombs, comprising as it does the firsthand unadulterated 
testimony of the chief accusers, together with documentary "proofs" 
adduced for their claims.  Yet, strange to say, practically no 
attention was paid to this priceless pamphlet - least of all by 
indignant Theosophists who put no stock in what Mme. Coulomb might 
have to say! -, not until, that is, the appearance in 1937 of Mrs. 
Hastings' booklet, Defence of Madame Blavatsky (Volume II) 
The "Coulomb Pamphlet".  Unfortunately, Mrs. Hastings did not live 
to complete her promising study of the case.
