Yes, right, I mispoke. I should
have put "Where" and "If" something was
edited and not "What."

author quote from a book that had been
"silently edited?" At least the dots (....)
gives it validity and one knows that
something is missing. With the dots in,
one might use the quote, but without the
dots, I wouldn't use the quote myself.
Occult World may be an excellent source
of material, but how much ultimate good
does that do if other researchers won't
quote from it.
Like I said before, if some of early
material isn't available somewhere....
then it also looks like something is being
hid by theosophists. So point to where it i
s available, or even help make available,
but one doesn't have to helter-skelter
intermix it with unchallenged material.
