Mysterious mission to Adyar to refute me (to JHE)

Dear Jerry,

I've enjoyed reading what you have to say despite the fact that it 
causes repeated exposure to toxic material you quote. I would ask 
you and everyone who keeps piling on the "Cayce's relevance" thread 
to change the header. None of the last dozen or so posts have 
anything whatsoever to do with Cayce, and it is a disservice to 
anyone who might look through the archives to use uninformative and 
misleading headers. You wrote, quoting Dallas:

> >I see a parallel here, like the Hodgson Report did. But unless 
someone will go to India and do the necessary proving and leg-work, 
the nonsense will prevail here in the "West." -- and I cannot bear 
to see any attempt to smirch the Great Personages to whom humanity's 
and my Honor is due. I am too old and unwell to do it myself, but I 
know it can be done. 
> > 
> I would say that at this point, it cannot be done. 

I would ask you here not to implicitly accept DTB's false premise in 
your response. You have previously made clear to him that my work 
was in no way an attempt to besmirch anyone. So has Daniel. Even 
John Algeo acknowledges that my approach is basically friendly to HPB 
and Theosophy. (As have a large number of reviewers and authors.) 
To have Dallas publicly repeat a libelous false accusation FOR MORE 
THAN TEN YEARS despite having it repeatedly corrected by those in a 
position to know-- including most of all myself repeatedly-- is 
galling. PLEASE don't encourage this nasty-- and possibly criminal-- 
behavior by letting the false accusation pass unchallenged. (Thanks 
for challenging it the first time.) I simultaneously appeal to Eldon 
not to allow anyone to be libeled here.

Now to the main point:

And here is why: 
> You are already aware that a mutual friend, who (for the sake of 
> privacy) I will not name, did go to India and tried to do that leg-
work, only to be blocked from doing so. This was not an exception, 
but the general rule. Nethercot, the author of a two volume 
biography of Besant visited Adyar in the course of his research and 
was not permitted to see any records at all. Paul Johnson, during 
the course of his research, went to Adyar in order to access Olcott's 
diaries, and has reported on this discussion board that he was denied 
access to them. The truth is that those who control critical records 
and evidence, are unwilling to allow access to anyone making an open 
inquiry who might come to conclusions that could challenge or in some 
way modify the party-line version of history that has been embedded 
in the Theosophical theology.

Years ago Daniel boasted here that a friend of his was going to India 
to refute my books, and that was the last I heard of the matter. Now 
you release this tidbit, and while I have no desire to know who my 
secret antagonist was, the anecdote is intriguing to me since I 
motivated his/her fruitless trip to India. So I would ask you to 
comment on the story's implications.

Do you mean to suggest that Radha et al are in possession of facts 
about the Masters' identities that they want to conceal from ANY 
inquirer? That even in the case of a book they wanted to condemn or 
dismiss, they would not allow information refuting it to be 
discovered or made public? Or, rather, are you suggesting that they 
don't know what secrets are in the archives, don't want to know, and 
don't want anyone else to know? Of course I have wondered all along 
what information that supports any of my hypotheses has been 
concealed or even (horror of horrors) destroyed. Certainly the 
history of the TS in the Punjab and Kashmir could be much better 
known with archives access that just through published material.

All speculation, of course, but fascinating.
