Did Phillip Lindsay ever comment on the BELOW items and/or admit that 
he was mistaken and that it was actually Bailey who "used" some of 
Leadbeater's and Besant's original ES material when writing her 
book "Initiation, Human and Solar"? 


Nicholas Weeks wrote:

"Her [Bailey's]books are rooted in the pseudo-theosophy pioneered by 
CW Leadbeater." 

Phillip Lindsay replied:

"It is actually the other way around. Leadbeater used some of
AAB's original material from books such as Intiation, Human and Solar 
and took the credit for it in his book The Masters and the Path." 

Jerry Hejka-Ekins commented:

"I read it [Bailey's Initiation Human and Solar] some years ago, and 
found it very faithful to the ES teachings [of Besant and Leadbeater]
as they were presented from 1910-1918."
