Re: HPB COMMENTS on FRAGMENTS OF OCCULT TRUTH
As I am given to understand the HPB COMMENTS on FRAGMENTS OF OCCULT TRUTH
were in the shape of her editorial footnotes to the Hume articles, have you
contrary or different information?
These "comments" do not appear to be Hume's writing, are you sure?
Do they ring unclear, or different from the philosophy? To me, they read and
sound like HPB.
This is the first time I read of a possible editoring in 1895 (Modern
Panarion) by Mead.
I noted that our friend Mr. M. Gomes has rendered that opinion concerning
the articles.. What had or has he to say about the editorial "Comments?"
I will also ask him by means of a copy of this note.

Subject: Dallas, I am puzzled by your comments about the authorship of
"In the recent reproduction of this, only
HPB's COMMENTS have been reproduced."
I am puzzled by your above comments. As
far as I can tell, these "comments" are by
A.O. Hume. I thought you knew that A.O.
Hume wrote the first three "Fragments."
HPB, the Master KH, Alice Gordon and
Mr. Hume himself indicate Hume's authorship
in various letters and articles.
The editor (GRS Mead) of MODERN PANARION
apparently was not aware of this in 1895
and assumed that HPB wrote the 3 articles
but primary source material indicates otherwise.
