Subject: My protest on behalf of H.P.B.
Please, lest I be misunderstood:
I did not challenge Johnson I asked for sources or proof that HPB
spoke or wrote "untruths." He made the allegation. He offered
I protested on HPB's behalf -- since she is "dead," and unable to
respond, or explain. Nothing like that ought to be allowed to
pass, in my esteem, by any decent person. Silence is consent. I
do not consent.
I will respect anything which carries sources which can be
verified by any one of us, -- so we can make up our own minds. I
object to being told I should accept anything which is not
explained (with adequate referencing) from the start.
I do not intend to engage in argument or controversy.
I am interested solely in the study of, practice and promulgation
of "original" Theosophy that she brought for us to study. I
regard Mme. H.P.Blavatsky as my teacher, and intend to protest
unverified attacks on her integrity.
Let any one challenge Theosophy, if that can be done. But,
taking advantage of the "dead," who cannot respond is -- I leave
it to you to qualify.
I hope that my position in this matter is clear. Dallas

Theosophy is a subject for debate, if anyone wishes to try it.
H.P.Blavatsky is not subject to debate, as none of us are
undertakers, bior dare we impute motives to one who is unable to
answer or explain.
To me the proposition is a simple and direct one.
