What a great work you have done, compiling all this material and 
being able to supply the relevent items when needed. Those of us who 
feel reverence for the great soul that was HPB are truly grateful 
that we are still able to have the eyewitness accounts to inform us 
and others about what really happened in those formative days. 

Thank you!
