Interesting revelations in Ross' Book - Krotona Vol IV

In the recent book  Ross' Book - Krotona Vol IV, there are some interesting

It appears that A P Sinnett promised to leave the Mahatma Letters collection
to Besant to be kept in the Adyar Archives, most likely the ES Archives. CWL
felt that the letters should not have been published since that was what was
mentioned in the ML.

Since the Letters went in the estate of APS they got published and many many
were benefitted by the letters. I think it was the good fortune of TS and
its members that the invaluable letters were published and thus helped
members and continues to do so.

The other interesting revelation was that when the book Masters and the Path
was in manuscript stage, CJ felt that it should be put in the trash can. But
it was later published and many enjoyed what was in it even though there
were critics.

I think Ross has done a very invaluable service in publishing some of the
facts which in the normal course would have been hidden from members or lost
for ever. The book is a feast for anyone interested in theosophical history
even though those toeing organizational line may not like its publication. I
do not think theosophical book stores carry it.
