Thank you for your notes. Very much appreciated as not many people have the money, time and analytic capacity to subject the book to a critical reading and report the findings.
Your conclusion merits reproduction:
As I have read and carefully studied the narratives written by Pelletier in this book I have come to the conclusion that Pelletier
employs (as much as Paul Johnson ever did) speculative possibilities with little or no documentation whatsoever.
No doubt, Pelletier devoted hundreds if not thousands of hours to collecting the documents reprinted in this volume and in doing the extensive chronological survey and all students of Theosophical history owe his a big thanks. But the above mentioned "gaps" and "speculations" make the book less than useful especially to students who may not know much about the subject but would like to know more. [bold words in original]
