Dear Gerry:

Of course you are right. All I write is only my opinion.  But
your caution is one well taken.  And I ought to us IMHO far more
often. I frequently assume we have all studied the same material

As to differences between the writings of HPB and CWL have you
got and read Margaret Thomas' THEOSOPHY OR NEO-THEOSOPHY.  this
book was published in 1923 I believe and in parallel columns she
shows these differences.  It has recently been reprinted by the
THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY, of Edmonton, ( P.O.Box 4804),  Alberta,
Canada, T6E 5G6.

Dr. Stokes in THE OE LIBRARY CRITIC, which he published monthly
around the same period from Washington D C also has drawn
attention to those differences.

But the statement that I made was based on familiarity with both
writings.  I am sorry indeed if I have offended you or others,
but I thought that everyone was familiar with those differences
after their own study.

In sackcloth and ashes,  Dallas
