It is interesting because Elvira worked under the International
Secretary and lived at Adyar. That means it can be assumed that she
knows about Radha's health more as she could watch her and live with
her. If a person working at Adyar has this impression, it actually is
testimony that Radha's health was bad.

If Radha's fitness certificate had not arrived when Elvira sent
e-mails, then one can not blame Elvira for sending wrong information.
She can say she wrote what she saw.

Again "had" is correct. Had they received fitness certificate of Radha
when French Board informed members that Radha had brain damage?

I think National President of American Section has right to
communicate her opinions to members of her Section.
