Judge wrote the Preliminary Memorandum
of the E.S. when he was visiting
HPB in London in Dec. 1888. She
corrected, added and amended the text.
See HPB's "Collected Writings," vol. 12.
HPB herself wrote the 3 E.S. Instructions and
later gave oral teachings to the Inner Group.
One version of these oral teachings
is given in Vol. III of the S.D. and
reprinted in ESOTERIC TEACHINGS, Quest
ed. A *complete* transcription of
HPB's oral teachings is found in the
2nd edition of THE INNER GROUP TEACHINGS
OF H.P. BLAVATSKY published by
Point Loma Publications, San Diego, CA.
If interested, I can give more details, etc.
