I have been told by a non-Indian friend and long time resident at 
Adyar, who is not a member of any Committee, that Elvira Carbonell 
took up residence in Pondicherry after she left Adyar. According to 
the same friend, Elvira also told some Adyar residents that she had 
decided to stay in India and not to go back to the US because she was

that he had received an envelope from Pondicherry, but without the 
sender's address on it. When he opened it, he discovered that it 
contained a copy of Betty Bland's letter of 19 March 2008 on one side 
of the paper, and on the other Radha Burnier's letter of 12 March

friend in New Zealand. I reproduce below the opening information in 
Betty's email:
