Dear Gerry and Marshall:

Butting in with my 0.02,  I have often found statements that HPB
has made which at the time I did not understand or follow the
logic of.  I set them aside to be verified. and have found over
some years sometime, that they dovetailed with the philosophy of
Theosophy that she presented eventually.

There are exception such a spellings and a few minor errors,
which may have resulted from errors in proof reading.  But, bye
and large, Theosophy as she placed it before us is coherent and
comprehensive.  No other writer that I know of has been able to
match her scope, and detailed knowledge of ancient and current
thought (in her days).  I grew to trust the statements made,
while retaining my own right to check them out as far as possible
by parallel studies.            Dallas
