By the text below,  I guess Daniel Caldwell  implies the new issue of FOHAT magazine is already available. It must be arriving to me soon.  

I strongly recomend students to subscribe FOHAT, as it is one of the few theosophical publications now discussing  the problems and potentialities of the movement in an open and direct way. 

FOHAT is an open forum for those committed to the movement. 

Regards,  Carlos Cardoso Aveline .

Assunto:Theos-World Open Letter to Robert Bruce MacDonald, Editor of FOHAT Message List
