I applaud Govert in pointing out that Pedro is one of the few officers who
have participated here. Everyone here who has been reading the messages know
what his factual contributions are. There was only one other officer - a

all have our own different views on a lot of things, the one thing which
brings all of us here is our interest in theosophy and I hail the
contribution of everyone.
