I quoted my reference as Mr. R.A.Gilbert of Bristol, UK, a well known
student of theosopical history and author of a number of books on
esoteric matters. I have no reason to doubt his word, as his research
has always been, in my experience, impeccable. I will, however, put
this question to him in the hope that he may have the time to come up
with chapter and verse, or, if need be, to correct me if I am wrong in
thus attributing this matter to him
